A Meal Without Wine Is Called Breakfast.

Anyone who knows me can tell you I'm a huge fan of wine. Specifically dry and red. In fact my bridesmaids (and Mom) threw me a beautiful wine themed bridal shower two years ago. It was perfect.

You don't have to be a wine snob to appreciate a glass every now and again but with so much information out there about foods to pair what wine with it can be daunting. So I thought I'd share my quick wine and cheese cheat sheet with you. 


Cabernet- Gouda or Chedder

Merlot- Goat Cheese or Asiago

Pinot Noir- Colby or Parmesan 


Chardonney- Chedder or Parmesan  

Riesling- Swiss or Gouda 

Pinot Gris (also known as Pinot Grigio) - Brie or Mozzarella 

You can get as elaborate as you'd like of course, add figs or roasted grapes. But this little list is nice to have when you are getting last minute guests and only have but a few minutes to put together an appetizer.
