Wine & Cheese Pairings

Brie and Riesling

An ultra creamy, soft, and butter brie is a perfect pairing with a punchy, acidic, and aromatic Riesling. The Riesling is a perfect contrast to the creaminess of the brie.

Cheddar Dip and Gewürztraminer

This cheddar dip recipe (which you can find here) includes mustard which gives it a little kick. I really enjoyed this dip with a Gewürztraminer, which is an aromatic wine that typically has a slight spiciness to it. Gewürztraminer is a wine that originated in Germany, but it is actually most commonly found in other countries like France, Moldova, and Italy.

Comté and Spätburgunder

Comté is actually a french cheese made with unpasteurized cow’s milk. Its typically fairly mild with nutty and earthy flavors. This pairs perfectly with a classic German Spätburgunder with cherry, cranberry, and subtle earthy notes as well.

Gouda and Blaufränkisch

A moderately aged Gouda has hints of nuts and a slightly sweet flavor. Try it with a Blaufränkisch, which is typically a medium-bodied red wine with hints of allspice and black cherry.
