Hard Cheese –
Cheddar, Comté, Manchego and Parmigiano-Reggiano go perfectly with red wines, ones not too light and not too heavy are your best choices – Cabernet Sauvignon and Rioja or Chardonnay accompanies cheddar delightfully.
Soft Cheese –
Whether you prefer spreadable cheeses such as Philadelphia or more solid but still quite soft such as brie and camembert, the best wine companions are your fruity reds such as Pinot Noir or Beaujolais, but for something lighter a Rosé will match wonderfully.
Blue Cheese –
Blue Cheeses aren’t for everybody, but if you’re one for their unique taste, a Stilton, Roquefort or Gorgonzola paired with Port or Stilton are classic companions. If you wanted to try something outside of wine, try a sweet sherry or sloe gin.
