Hard salty cheeses and strong soft cheeses pair very well with sweeter wines, where creamer cheeses pair best with dry wines. Below are some options that you can explore:

  • Gouda – Cabernet
  • Aged cheddar – Malbec
  • Manchego – try this one with a sparkly wine.
  • Ricotta – Riesling
  • Parmesan – bubbly Prosecco
  • Gruyere – Chardonnay
  • Brie – Merlot
  • Bleu cheese – Pinot Noir or a sweet Port
  • Feta – a bright red or dry Rose, slightly sweet wine is perfect with salty feta

The best part about wine pairings is that they should be easy, so please do not feel like you must serve all these selections.  

With a few of these pairs along with your common party finger foods (crackers, olives, sweet pickles, nuts, fruit and artisan meats) you can easily put together a presentation that your guests will love without pulling your hair out or planning for weeks!
