Wine and Cheese Guide List
(This page is not intended
for small screens.)

by Vaughn Aubuchon

The following list summarizes the most common wines and cheeses. Use the chart to try new combinations of wine and cheese. As a match-up guide, the most common varietal and regional wines are listed, as well as popular soft, semi-soft, and hard cheeses.

There are many pairings that have been recommended. I will not attempt to list them all here. What is best is what YOU like. What pleases you trumps any wine-snob recommendations.
