Step By Step Guide To Building A Mouth-Watering Cheese Board
with mouth-watering wine pairings
I’ll be honest, I’ve made my fair share of crappy cheese boards. Unless you were somehow born a cheese board genius, you probably have no clue how to make these amazing cheese and charcuterie boards that you see on everyone’s Instagram feeds.
I’m here to show you that it’s not as difficult as it looks. Check out my step-by-step video guide (including an ingredient list) on how to build a board that doesn’t suck. In fact, it will impress the hell out of your friends. You may even want to get a career in assembling cheese boards. Ok, Im getting ahead of myself. Time to watch the video below. Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post for mouth-watering wine pairings!
Mouth-Watering Wine & Cheese Pairings:
Humboldt Fog and Pinot Grigio
Humboldt Fog is a ripened soft goat cheese from California. It has a creamy texture with a soft punch of citrus flavor (its SO delicious). I highly recommend pairing it with a tangy, zesty Pinot Grigio (AKA Pinot Gris)
Valtellina Casera and Nebbiolo
Valtellina Casera is a sweet Italian cheese made with cow’s milk. It pairs best with a red, fruity, and medium to full-bodied wine such as a Nebbiolo.
Triple Creme Cheese and Sparkling Wine
A full, creamy cheese like Cowgirl Creamery’s Mt. Tam pairs perfectly with a refreshing and acidic sparkling wine or Champagne.
Cheddar and Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine with rich flavor and high tannins, which makes it a classic paring with a flavorful cheddar cheese.
Mimolette (Hard & Rich) Cheese and Syrah
A rich cheese like Mimolette calls for a rich wine. Syrah is a rich, powerful red wine with notes of black cherry, plum, and blackberry that will pair nicely with this cheese.
