Pairing Wine & Cheese

When paired, wine and cheese do their part to bring out the best in each other, and even expert turophiles can’t agree on any absolutes in the wine and cheese pairing match game. There are some who believe it should be red wine with hard cheese and white wine with soft cheeses but the most fun is in finding out for yourself. To get you started here are some perfect cheese pairings with our wines. . .
