A fresh and fruity Chardonnay is a heavenly match for milder cheese varieties, enhancing the creaminess of a Mild Cheddar or Colby Jack cheese with just the right whisper of sweet. Also try with crab cakes, seafood, poultry and salads.
Medium bodied, apples, pears, toasty, dry
A bright, light-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with hints of citrus will never overpower the freshness and milder qualities of a Monterey Jack nor get lost in the more complex flavors of an herbed cheese. Also try with oysters on the half-shell, flaky white fish or quiche.
Light bodied, citrus, grassy, crisp, dry
The higher acidity of a Pinot Grigio pairs beautifully with creamy, milder cheeses, gently cleansing the palate to let the cheese rise to the top. Also try with a ham and cheese melt or seafood risotto.
Light bodied, pears, melons, refreshing, dry
The playful sweet and fruity flavors of a Moscato flirts with smooth and flavorful cheeses and will put a smile on your face when paired with spicier cheese favorites. Also try with fresh fruit or spicy ethnic cuisine such as Indian, Latin or Thai.
Light bodied, orange blossom, lemon zest, aromatic, off dry
Try a bright white blend with more complex and flavorful foods. These wines have the table manners to sit back and let spicier cheeses take center stage. Also try with white fish such as sea bass, sole or cod, chicken or pork.
Medium bodied, layers of white fruits, crisp and bright
A dry to off-dry sparkling wine or Champagne is delightful with just about anything. Actually, we can't think of a thing these bubblies don't love. Also try with ... popcorn or potato chips!
