- Keep it simple. Your guests will drink one, or at most two, wines with their cheese.
- These 3 types of wines will be a great selection: a sparkling wine, a dry Riesling and a Pinot Noir.
- The effervescence of the sparkling wine will cut the cheeses’ fat and protein and pair well with creamy Brie style cheese and alpine cheeses. The dry Riesling is very versatile and will be nice with pungent cheeses. The light, cherry flavors of Pinot Noir will be harmonious to most of your cheeses.
