I really like cheddar cheese. What wine goes best with it?

Greetings, winelvr!

I'm always hesitant to say "this one wine is the only one you should drink." What if I said "I really love port with cheddar" - and you hate port. Then, even if you tried cheddar and port, you would hate it.

So that being said, I love cheddar and we eat it all the time - either alone or on crackers. It's a cheese we always have a lot of in the fridge. I like it with pretty much every wine. I suppose I like it best with Shiraz and Chianti - reds that are spicy and fruity.

You inspired me to go cut up some cheddar to finish off my Chianti with! It goes nicely.

I try to keep drinking new wines all the time so I don't tend to develop favorites - but I do like the Greg Norman Shiraz.

Wine and cheese have gone hand in hand for centuries; however, with today’s ever increasing options for both wines and cheese the pairing decisions can be staggering. So, to take a lot of the guess work out of pairing, here is a handy guide to give you a starting point for pairing your favorite wines with soon-to-be favored cheese.

(Lisa's note - he didn't provide a link, which is just as well, as we would have considered it to be spam)

Don't guess, test. Spend a lot of time sipping wine with vairious cheeses until you figure out what you like.

I agree completely, Peter. We all have different taste buds. No book or chart can tell us what will work best for our own tongue smile.
