5 Epic Wine & Cheese Pairings

5 Epic Wine & Cheese Pairings

There is nothing better than a wine and cheese that pair beautifully together - the perfect night in!  Whether it's on your own, with a mate, date, or entertaining, these combos are bound to please.


1. Shiraz with Castello Creamy Blue

Open a Forest Hill Vineyard Estate Shiraz ($29) which is powerful enough to match this iconic blue cheese. Serve directly from your DiVino wine fridge and enjoy! 


2. Bordeaux with Truffle Cheese

Make sure to choose a cheese with real truffle in it, not truffle oil. Pair with a Bordeaux, which is a red blend from the Bordeaux region in France. Such as this Chateau Mazeris Canon Fronsac 2016 ($40) which is a Merlot / Cabernet Franc blend.


3. Malbec with Red Leicester

Bodega Catena Zapata High Mountain Vines Malbec ($30) from Argentina, or Spinifex Solana ($42) from the Barossa Valley complements nicely a Red Leicester cheese. Try this for yourself!


4. Louis Bouillot Perle de Vigne with Blue Cheese

Cremant de Bourgogne is a sparkling from the Burgundy region in France, a great alternative to champagne. It perfectly balances a sharp blue cheese. Try Louis Bouillot Perle de Vigne Grand Reserve NV, for $35 you'll be surprised that it isn't champagne!


5. Wine with Mersey Valley sharp and crumbly cheddar

Popular on an Aussie cheeseboard, this iconic cheddar pairs well with:

  • a slightly oaked Chardonnay like: Dawning Day Chardonnay ($38),
  • a medium-bodied Shiraz such as: Toolangi Paul’s Lane Shiraz ($31), or
  • a sparkling like: Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant Brut ($75)


Try these delish pairings for yourself and tell us which is your favourite!
