1. Moscato and Gorgonzola

Pungent and funkier cheeses need a lighter wine to balance the palate. The heavy mouthfeel and strong flavor of gorgonzola are best matched with a sweeter wine for a refreshing change. Gorgonzola Dolce is a mildly sweeter version of the classic Italian blue. It’s also rich and creamy, perfect for pairing with fruits or drizzled with honey. Match this cheese with the Villa Amoroso Moscato Vino Dolce, a vibrant Moscato with sweet and floral hints. Its semi-fruity flavors of peach and citrus with floral aromas and a light fizz cut through the strong flavor of gorgonzola beautifully.

2. Pinot Noir and Brie

The soft and creamy texture of Brie needs a wine with a distinct flavor yet light enough not to overwhelm the palate to cut through the creaminess of the cheese. French Brie  60% Double Cream is an ultra-creamy version of the cheese with perfectly balanced mild, sweet and ripe flavors to go with its texture. Get a French Pinot Noir like the 2019 Roche Mazet Pinot Noir that has hints of red fruit, black fruit and spice.

Gruyere’s warm and lingering nutty flavor plus its firm yet creamy texture will keep you wanting more.

This 1655 Cave Aged Gruyere is produced in Switzerland by skilled artisans featuring hints of nutty sweetness, dried fruit and roasted meat with a buttery finish. Pair it with this 2019 Cannery Row Chardonnay that features tasting notes of lemon custard, golden apple and vanilla.
