This month, Ted shares his personal wisdom and thoughts about Wine and Cheese pairing.


I am not much into pairing wines with food.  I am a bit free spirited when it comes to that… drink what you like with the foods you like is my motto.

I know, many sommeliers and chefs will think that I am an unsophisticated wine idiot  That’s okay.  I just think wine goes with anything.  The most important aspect of drinking wine with food is enjoyment.

Although, I do like certain cheeses with certain wines!  So, here are a few cheeses and a few wines I do like to drink with them.   This is just a guide, so no set rules.

Again, the main goal with pairing wine is enjoyment!

  • Gouda – Merlot
  • Cheddar – Cabernet
  • Parmesan – Chianti (Sangiovese)
  • Gruyère- Sauvignon Blanc
  • Manchego – Rioja (Tempranillo)
  • Blue – Late Harvest Riesling
  • Goat – Chenin Blanc
  • Feta – Beaujolais (Gamay)
  • Chocolate – Cabernet  (no, it’s not a cheese, I just love chocolate and wine. What a pairing!!!)


Pour Vous has several Boar’s Head cheeses in stock!


Come visit and Let’s talk about wine pairing… or not!
