Whether you’re making a grilled cheddar cheese sandwich in your skillet with butter and good bread or you are channeling Rocco diSpirrito or Carla Hall by creating a delectable gourmet offering, pairing your grilled cheese with the perfect wine will make it a special occasion.

There is room for serious creativity here! But to get you started, our wonderful friends at Wine Sisterhood have some great tips for you.

  • When in doubt go with a full-bodied white like Chardonnay.  The wine will always complement the buttery bread, no matter what is inside.
  • Another no brainer – Bubbly!  Bubbly goes with any cheese and any sandwich, any time!
  • Slightly sweet white wines like Riesling or Moscato will pair nicely with any sandwich that has a spicy kick.
  • Adding any sort of “green” like pesto or arugula, go with a light bodied wine with some acid like a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.
  • Light- to medium-bodied red, with reasonable acidity like a Pinot Noir or Merlot works well with any combination of cheddar and turkey, ham or bacon sandwich.
  • Cheddar and Cabernet Sauvignon are the perfect pair!  Really, you can’t go wrong here!
