Cheat sheet gourmet! Combinations of cheese and wine.

Keep this memo for yourself so that the choice of wine and cheese for you is always accompanied by true delight.
1. White wines go well with cheese better than red wines. This is especially true for cheeses with a sharp, strongly pronounced taste, as they bring down the taste of red wines, spoiling their bouquet.
2. The stronger and sharper the taste of cheese, the stronger the wines it requires.
3. Cheeses do not like the pronounced taste of wood, so it is best to avoid using wines that are long aged in wooden barrels.
4. For neutral and sweetish cheeses, it is better not to serve fresh wines, as they are high in acid and will look even more sour with cheese.
5. The choice of wine also depends on the degree of maturity of the cheese. The more mature the cheese, the more seasoned the wine goes to it.
6. Cheese and wine produced in the same region usually complement each other in the best way.
7Red wines are best served with soft to taste delicate cheeses, and dry white wines - with savory snack cheeses.
Blue cheeses with mold are best combined with dessert and fortified red wines.
Fresh cheeses such as mozzarella, ricotta and feta are served with light white and rosé wines.
Fresh goat cheeses are perfectly combined with fruit wines, preferably red ones.
Melted cheeses are usually not served to wine.
