Gourmet Cheese and White Wines

The best wine and cheese pairings feature a delightful balance of flavors and textures. While red wines often offer bolder flavors, they can dominate all but the most robust cheeses. With white wine, it’s easier to achieve a delicious harmony – especially with our deliciously creamy French fromage! Plus, white wines are refreshing and taste great chilled during the warmer months ahead.

In general, white wines offer a sweet, citrus flavor that is crisp and zesty. These qualities make them delicious with salty, creamy cheeses. While the flavors are divine together, the textures are an even better match. White wines are invigoratingly acidic, and penetrate through the smooth cheeses to create a truly delicious sensation.
