Cheese Entertaining Tips

Wine & Cheese - A Perfect Pairing

Wine and cheese are a natural combination for any entertaining occasion. In general, the lighter the wine, the milder the cheese. The more full bodied the wine, the stronger the cheese. Below we've partnered some cheeses and wines to give you the best flavor.

Mild Cheeses Medium Cheeses Strong Cheeses
Cheeses Colby, Farmer’s or Monterey Jack Mild Cheddar, Edam, Swiss, Gouda, Brie or Havarti Sharp Cheddar, Extra Sharp Cheddar, Aged Reserve or Blue
Wines Red Burgundy, Zinfandel or Riesling Red Burgundy, Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer or Merlot Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay or Beaujolais

Entertaining Tips

  • Cut cheese fresh from the refrigerator. It is easier to cut when cold.
  • Set cheese out 30 minutes to one hour before guests arrive though, because cold temperatures mute the flavor.
  • If you don't have a cheese slicer, use a potato peeler to cut thin slices of hard cheeses like Parmesan and Asiago.
  • Set out permanent markers for guests to write their names on their wine glasses. The ink washes off glass with a little soap & water!
  • Slate serving boards are great for displaying your cheese. Use chalk to write the names of the cheeses right on the board.
