Chardonnay and Brie

Chardonnay is known as a medium to full-bodied white wine that goes perfectly with the soft and buttery flavor of brie. The creamy texture of brie pairs perfectly with the fruity and slightly acidic notes of the Chardonnay; this pairing is perfect for a light appetizer or to end a meal. Either way, you can serve it on your own custom charcuterie board for a lovely presentation!

Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine that tends to pair very well with aged cheddar cheese. The bold and complex flavor of the Cabernet Sauvignon is balanced by the sharpness and nutty flavor of the aged cheddar. This pairing is perfect for a hearty meal or to enjoy with friends over a board game.

Pinot Noir and Gouda

Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied red wine that can go over really well when it’s enjoyed with gouda cheese, which has a nutty and caramel-like flavor. The rich and earthy flavors of the Pinot Noir are sure to complement the rich and creamy texture of the gouda cheese and make it perfect for a romantic night or for a cozy evening with friends. If you’re feeding a large crowd, you can place the crackers and cheese on a custom charcuterie board.
