Pulling together a flawless cheese board is a precise art, but pairing the correct wine with the finest cheese can be an even trickier task. We've used cheeses from our Artisan Cheese Kit and Specialty Cheese Kit to create pairings with a variety of cheeses and wines to fit everyone's palates. 

Soft and Fresh Cheeses: 
The texture of light and creamy cheeses on the tip of your tongue suit crisp white, sparkling wines, dry rose and light reds.

Pair:
Cheese Wine
Camembert, Feta, Halloumi, Mozzarella, Chevre Frais and Ricotta. Champagne, Moscato, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, White port and Sherry.
 
Semi Hard, Medium Aged Cheeses: 
The next step from fresh cheese is a firmer texture with stronger flavour. Wines that offer a balance between acidity, fruit and tannins are the best match for semi hard cheeses. So these need fruity reds, medium whites and vintage sparkling wines.

Pair:
Cheese Wine
Havarti, Monterey Jack and young Cheddar. Chardonnay, Champagne, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Vintage Port and Pinot Blanc. 
 
Blue Cheeses: 
Wine for blue cheese needs to have a 'POP' with a sweetness to balance the bold flavours and very salty, savoury body.

Pair:
Cheese Wine
Stilton Style, Gorgonzola and Blue Vein. Sherry, Red Port and Tawny Port.

Hard Aged Cheese: 
Harder cheeses are a lovely pair for full bodied whites and tannic reds. The saltiness of hard cheeses is terrific for sweeter wines.

Well oaked wines also go very well with most cheeses. The wine seems to loose it sharpness and the cheese seems to becomeore favoursome
