People often associate dairy and alcohol as being bad for your body. But I would like to challenge those stipulations with saying that wine brings antioxidants for a happy body and cheese brings flavors for a happy mouth. Both are positive if you ask me. The beautiful combination can make for a fun night with your friends; but if you want to wow them, then here are some guidelines to the marriage of flavors of several types of wines and cheeses.
Remember to keep it organic, don’t compromise your lifestyle in order to impress the guests. Impress them with your ability to serve amazing wine and cheese that are both organic. I am going to break the cheese down into three categories; hard, semi-hard, and soft, specifically I will name some of my favorites and the wines that work best with them.
Brie:Champagne, Sweet Sherry, Merlot
Goat Cheese: Sancerre, Vouvray
Fresh Mozzarella: Light Reds, Whites
Gorgonzola: Sauternes - Bordeaux
Jarlsberg: Light Reds, Whites
Parmigiano- Reggiano: Chardonnay
These wines and cheeses all come in organic alternatives, so be sure to seek them out!
