Match cheese with wine
As a loose rule, softer cheeses go with white wines, and harder and milder cheeses with red wines.
Sweeter wines are the most versatile, going with the widest range of cheeses.
Soft creamy cheeses have a layer of fat which makes red wines dull and bland. Instead, these go better with sparkling wine, Sauvignon Blanc or a tart Riesling which will cut through the fat.
For smelly cheeses, the best is a big-bodied red, and a blue-veined cheese is best served with Port.
