Everybody knows that there are few things that taste better than grapes with cheese (which taste like kiss). But one of those things is wine, because when it accompanies cheese is simply such a great combination that can beat even chocolate.
We could also say that it is the best combination for the mood (I do not dare saying that it is goo as well for health, as those with high cholesterol should stop reading the post right now, because going any further will only cause them some troubles).
Not to disappoint anyone, notice that I have no space or time (or speed) to speak a thousand wines and a thousand cheeses, but I will do everything in my hand to make a quality selection which will bring you something new and appetizing, resulting in pairings that you can practice at home this very weekend.
To get started I suggest an English Cheddar cheese, which in its milder variant is perfect to be accompanied by a South Africa Chardonnay while when its most cured lends down with a glass of Rioja Crianza.
The Dutch Gouda (beautiful city, by the way) seems to me perfect to go together with a white wine from Alella. However, the Gruyere is ideal when accompanied by a Sauvignon Blanc (Chile, if you like powerful flavor or New Zealand , if you prefer a more floral touch).
Brie cheese can be quite an experience when presented with a glass of Pedro Ximénez, but if someone does not want to or cannot wait to the dessert time to try this combination, worthy of Olympus, then it is also a good idea to choose a good bread and a good Merlot, which will also catapult you to the absolute pleasure of cheese and wine lovers.
Feta cheese, especially if it is part of a salad of pear tomatoes, onions and black olives is the most ideal dining companion of a slight Burgundy. While other French wine, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape, could be a real success in a Raclette evening with friends.
Finally, Manchego cheese tastes even better if you eat it while tasting a glass of wine containing some Petit Verdot, although to purists I do not dare but recommend another than any of the Ribera del Duero best crianzas, obtaining an interesting recreation of the most distinguished cuisine of the both parts of Castile.
