Our top tips for pairing Wine & Cheese

Ah, wine and cheese—a match made in heaven! If you're a fan of this timeless duo, you know that finding the perfect pairing can be a tantalising adventure. Fear not, fellow foodies, for we have some cheeky tips up our sleeves to ensure your taste buds tango with delight. Get ready to embark on a journey where wine and cheese unite in delicious harmony!

  1. Opposites Attract: Just like magnets, sometimes opposites attract in the most delightful ways. When it comes to wine and cheese, try pairing contrasting flavors. A bold, robust red wine like our Cabernet Sauvignon dances divinely with a creamy, mellow cheese like Brie or Camembert. The sharpness of the wine cuts through the richness of the cheese, resulting in a balance that will make your taste buds do a happy dance.

  2. Go Local, Go Global: Why not take your palate on a globetrotting adventure? Experiment with wine and cheese from different regions. Pair our Pinot Grigio with some tangy Goat cheese from Peaks Cheese. The world is your oyster, or rather, your wine and cheese platter!

  3. Sweet Seduction: Prepare to be seduced by the sweet side of life. Indulge in the enchanting combination of sweet wines and creamy, dreamy cheeses. Picture this: our sweet Moscato with a wedge of luscious blue cheese. The interplay between the wine's sweetness and the cheese's saltiness will leave you in a state of bliss. 

  4. Sparkling Surprises: When in doubt, let the bubbles do the talking. Sparkling wines bring effervescent joy to any occasion, and they're a fantastic match for a variety of cheeses. Grab a glass of our Sparkling Rosé and team it up with a tangy, creamy goat's cheese or a classic triple cream cheese. The effervescence of the wine cuts through the richness of the cheese, creating a delightful contrast that will make your taste buds sing.

  5. Trust Your Gut, and Your Gut Feeling: In the end, the best tip we can give you is to trust your gut—and your gut feeling! Don't be afraid to experiment and explore your own taste preferences. Wine and cheese pairing is a personal journey, and there are no strict rules. Follow your instincts, be open to surprises, and enjoy the playful process of discovering your own unique combinations. After all, the cheekiest adventures often lead to the most delicious discoveries!
