Perfect Pairing

It’s a fact: there are few things that go together better than cheese and wine. A 2016 study from the Journal of Food Science found that eating cheese while drinking wine can improve the wine-tasting experience.

Centuries in the making, wine and cheese have been served together since they started being produced in countries like France and Italy. Depending on where particular types of wine and cheese were made in specific regions, pairings came together naturally. Take beaujolais and brie which were likely made in the same villages on neighbouring farms and wineries, for hundreds of years. But you don’t need to know the science or the history behind the pair to know how popular combination cheese and wine are.

Where light reds go with soft, mild cheeses, it’s no surprise that rich full-bodied reds tend to pair well with more flavoursome fromage: a cabernet sauvignon with an extra sharp cheddar perhaps, or a malbec with a smoked gouda. And for real indulgence, it always pays to break out the tawny port after dinner and enjoy a nice slow tipple paired with something a little tangier, such as a stilton or gorgonzola.

Despite the popularity of the pair, the final missing piece of this perfect puzzle is the glassware. If you’re giving your customers good wine, you need to also give them good glasses with sleek curves and satisfying weight to complement any pour.
