6 Perfect Wine and Cheese Pairings to Impress the Pickiest Guest
There is no bad season for savoring some fine wine and cheese. Whether hosting or attending, you need to know the best wine-and-cheese pairings to bring to the hostess or to impress your guests. Colorado Party Rentals in Denver provides the best wine and cheese matches. The sommelier and cheese experts advise is ‘if it grows together, it goes together.’ Use the guide below to pick what to serve at your next party or corporate event.

The Perfect Match for Your Party Platter
Sparkling Bubbles and Camembert
Any sparkling wine or champagne would pair beautifully with Brie or Camembert cheese. The salty, mushroom edge of the cheese is a perfect match with the sparkly beverage.
Chardonnay and Compté
Chardonnay hosts a creamy tropical note which pairs well with the semi-firm cow’s milk cheese. The cheese has a slightly sweet flavor that compliments the white wine.
Pinot Grigio and Fontina
Fontina is known as the ‘other Brie’; it is a creamy Italian substitute for brie. Pinot Grigio has a light, tropical, floral note and pairs perfectly with the creamy, earthy cheese without feeling too heavy on your palate. Take this pair to a new level by using Granny Smith apple slices as ‘crackers’ to bring a bolder contrast between the fruity and earthy flavors.
Dry Riesling and Goat Cheese
Riesling is a high acid wine with a light, fresh flavor, and goes well with a slice of soft, tangy goat cheese. Goat cheese comes in many flavors, and whether berry-infused, herbed or plain, this will be a winning combination for any event!
Dry Rosé and Cheddar
Crisp fresh floral scents of the dry Rosé wine balance the sharp, slightly sweet edge of cheddar cheese. Aged cheddar with a more crumbly texture will be the perfect partner for the blush wine.
Malbec and Gruyère
Big, bold flavors dominate most Malbecs with plum and cherry undertones. The intense aromatic cheese of Gruyere stands up to the fruitiness and marries the two flavors beautifully.
