Which Wine Goes With Which Cheese?

576237_10151378942482017_811538110_nWhich cheese should you pair with which wine? Which wine goes with which cheese?

This wine/cheese pie chart from Wine Fetch offers a few ways to answer that question.

I’m preparing for a Twitter tasting of four Rieslings from Alsace on Thursday  from 4-5pm (more on that in tomorrow’s post!) so Annie AnyDay and I were discussing today what we should fix to pair with them.

Since Paradise Pantry is now open in their new location by the Mission in Ventura, I thought I’d go check out their new digs and we’d get a few specialty cheeses and meats there and take advantage of their knowledge!

But maybe you don’t have a Tina and Kelly near you to help you with your cheese selection–or maybe, like me you have a bunch of cheese in the fridge and you want to know what goes with what?

Well, in addition to the nifty pie chart, Wine Fetch is set up to with links from various cheeses to different wines and from wines to cheeses.(Yes, I have a crush right now on Wine Fetch!)

I simply clicked on the Riesling link and this is what the site delivered:

Wine Pairings for Ricotta Salada:

  Riesling: Ever easy-to-drink, Riesling is a brightly fruity wine to be sipped at parties or drunk by the glass during leisurely picnics. Paired with a dry, slightly salty Ricotta Salada, Riesling brings just the right balance without ever overpowering its Italian mate.
  Pinot Gris: Those who love the crisp richness and lovely scent of Pinot Gris will find it enhanced and even more enjoyable when paired with Ricotta Salada. A spongy, salty, but also milky cheese, Ricotta Salada is a dry Italian treat that brings out the best qualities in a bottle of Pinot Gris.

Pretty cool, huh!
