Wine-and-cheese pairings are classic, and for good reason: There are a range of cheese types and flavors, and countless bottles of wine to try.
3 Classic Wine-and-Cheese Pairings
Cheddar with Chateau Ste. Michelle Cabernet Sauvignon
The apple and cassis notes of this bold wine flatter the tang and fullness of the cheddar quite well.
Grana with Banfi Chianti Classico
Italian grana padano is a salty, aged, tangy-flavored cheese with a distinctive grainy texture similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano. It begs for the juicy, round fruit of this light-bodied wine.
Gruyère with Kenwood Sauvignon Blancrana
The crisp lime and slight mineral zing of the sauvignon blanc unites perfectly with this hard, fruity, nutty-flavored Swiss-style cheese.
