Wine and cheese work very well together.
While there are certainly no rules to uphold, matching wine and cheese carefully can bring out the best flavors in both.
• Harder types of cheese such as Pecorino can stand up to a wine with a lot of tannins, like a Cabernet Sauvignon.
• Creamy cheeses, like Brie, pair better with wines that have crisp, fruit flavors.
• Salty cheeses go best with a sweet wine partner like Muscat.
