Some foods just go well together and when it comes to entertaining, wine and cheese is such a pair. When paired up, wine and cheese do their part to bring out the best in each other. And even though it comes down to personal taste, certain guidelines have been proven favorable by a majority of enthusiasts. Here are some of those basic truths...White wines match best with soft cheeses and stronger flavors. Red wines match best with hard cheeses and milder flavors. Fruity and sweet white wines (not dry) and dessert wines work best with a wider range of cheeses. And my favorite tip, the more pungent the cheese, the sweeter the wine should be.
