Wine and cheese: the best pairings

The rapport between wine and cheese is so strong and well-known that it is said that in the past an innkeeper would often try and hide the low quality of their wine by serving it with cheese, a combination which always went down well. The custom of pairing cheese and wine is alive and well today, though fortunately nowadays the objective is to enjoy a good cheese and an excellent wine which go well together and bring out the best of each other. Traditionally the wine has usually been a red one, but this too has changed over the years as sometimes a white wine or even a sweet one may offer a more balanced pairing.
