Cheese and wine pairing: a match made in flavor
Is there more heavenly match made anywhere than a cheese and wine pairing? When these two meet, cheese brings nutty, tangy flavors with fat, salt and protein, perfectly balanced by the sugar, acidity, and tannins in the wine. The result: a wonderful blossoming of aromas and flavor notes that you just can't find when tasting wine and cheese by themselves.
For most people, however, choosing the "right" cheese and wine pairing feels a bit daunting. And if you're preparing a cheese and wine pairing for guests, the task can be a little nerve-racking.
Here in Wisconsin, we are always working to give our cheese the partners it deserves, so we've done a lot of wine and cheese pairing in our search for amazing flavor combinations.
