Paired for Perfection

Posted on May 2, 2016

Wine and cheese are natural allies in plant-based meals both simple and sublime. The question is, what goes with what? Ultimately, your own taste buds call the shots, and there’s no harm in experimenting. But let’s say the book club is coming over. Or you’re thinking about appetizers for an upcoming party. Here are a few pairing suggestions to get started:‬

Smoked Gouda

To enhance the complex flavors, try a classic full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with hints of cherries and even vanilla.

Jalapeño Havarti

To complement the spicy character of the cheeze, serve with a dry Riesling with a crisp, bright profile.

Medium Cheddar

So satisfying and expressive, this cheeze calls for Pinot Noir, aged in oak with a soft, velvety texture.

Monterey Jack

Some couples are meant to be; Jack, meet Rosé. Fruity, floral, citrus and melon—the perfect combination from imperfect partners.
