    What don’t you sip the cheese while chewing it? It may be gross but it does enhance the tasting like sipping with the wine.

  • John Blue Label

    Gary, another great show. Wine and cheese is the perfect combination. I’d like to see you try a real sharp, aged provolone with a Zenato Riserva Amarone.

    Kraft Singles with a nice glass of Strawberry Hill (side note: chased with a PBR)

    J/K – I really love a nice soft Brie pared with Honig Souvignon Blanc

    Gary, yet another great episode. QOTD: LOVE cheese, chocolate and wine. Although most of my favorite Italian cheeses “Dolcelatte, Mascarpone, and Mozzarella” don’t seem to go very well with any wine that I’ve found. Favorite Italian Cheese and Wine pairings would have to be older Castelmagno cheese with a quality Amarone wine, or Asiago cheese with Valpolicella Classico. Also Pecorino di fossi with any well made pinot grigio, as well as a good Refosco. Cheers ~ Jtk

    I love cheese. I love wine. I loved this episode.

    Perfect wine-cheese pairing? More of a wine-cheese-terroir pairing: a young Manchego cheese with a 1999 Bodega Ysios Reserva @ the AWESOME Calatrava-designed winery near La Guardia in Rioja.

    GV,

    Favorite wine and cheese pairings are:

    -Piave vecchio and an easy, jammy Italian red like a montepulciano or a dolcetto
    -Asiago or gruyere with a nice German or Alsatian riesling

    Those are just the ones that immediately come to mind. I love these episodes so definitely do more in the future!

    QOD: Favorite cheese and wine pairing? Geez! That’s really tough. I love too many cheeses (and the wine part goes without saying). I guess I would have to give you two (I know, cheating): 1) Morbiere and an older classified Bordeaux, and 2) Asiago and Brunello di Montalcino.

    Don’t eat much cheese, but I always keep some ~Asiago~ around to freshly shred onto Italian and Mexican dishes which goes well with the ~Valpolicella~ varieties. Also, that soft white cheese spread with garlic and herbs that comes in those plastic cups is good with Tempranillo.
