Let us take you through four charcuterie board ideas that pair with your favorite wine to make memorable moments that will last forever.
Four Charcuterie Board Ideas That Pair With Your Favorite Wine
Chardonnay and Light Bites
Chardonnay is an excellent pairing with light, easy bites such as fruits, nuts, and crackers. Grapes, pears, and apples complement the acidic bite of the wine beautifully. Almonds, walnuts, and pistachios provide a contrasting crisp texture to work with the wine's buttery notes while crackers and other light bites tie together the whole experience.
Pinot Noir and Charcuterie
Pinot Noir is a light-to-medium-body wine with earthy undertones and red fruit aromas, making it a perfect pairing for charcuterie. Meats such as prosciutto, salami, and pepperoni pair wonderfully with Pinot Noir’s acidity. The savory richness of cheese, olives, and pickles provides a perfect balance to the fruitiness of the wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Bold Cheese
Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with high tannin levels and a robust taste. Bold cheese complements it nicely, particularly aged cheddar, gouda, and manchego. The saltiness of the cheese and the fullness of the wine work together to make an excellent pairing. Add grilled vegetables, figs, and nuts for a classic charcuterie board with an elegant edge.
Rosé and Fruits
Rosé is a versatile pink wine with a broad range of flavors; from light-bodied and dry to robust and fruity. It pairs beautifully with fruits such as watermelon, strawberries, and grapes. Alongside fresh-cut fruit, you can include figs, citrus, and other berry variations. Finish off your charcuterie board with a balsamic glaze or orange marmalade for a perfect match.
