Hey guys, I am developing a cheese wheel for We'll be putting a lot of effort to provide food/wine pairings for newbies and experts alike. Adding food/wine pairings is great, but the most often question I get is cheese. Since there are a million cheeses out there, let's try to assemble more notes on cheese wine pairings, even going into the more obscure. First off, my favorite cheese is Blue Cheese. I LOVE stinky cheeses. I mean offensively stinky cheese tends to be the most tasty. I pair them with Rhone blends: Syrah, or syrah blends like Chateauneuf du Pape. What else would you pair with a blue cheese?

A classic pairing is Port. You can also try Late Harvest wines.

It's opposites attracting: salty/sweet.

My choice absolutely is a tawny port - Barros 30 yr Tawny is my fave. Definitely have to add walnuts to that mix, as well.

Another answer..... not the classic. Tokaji. This thread may surprise!

Glad you qualified it with the word "English."

I've had the knock-off kind--yuck!

In London, do I still have to use the word "English" ? They have some heavenly stiltons at Harrods. [img][/img]

This is awesome. How about smoked gouda, or perhaps an infused goat cheese?
