Fine Wines to pair with Charcuterie

 

Cheese pairs especially well with sweet fruits, honey & jam, while charcuterie meats pair with items like mustards, olives & asparagus. Add figs, cherry tomatoes, fresh fruit, crackers, breads & fine wines. 

 

Enjoy & Share

Serve the perfect wine with your platter

The refreshing crispness of a Sauvignon Blanc is great with all sorts of Pâté, creamy cheese, fresh & roasted vegetables, jellies, jams & breads.  A dry Riesling paired with a board of prosciutto is outstanding. If you are serving a hot sopressata, or a mild one, a glass of an oaky Chardonnay is a perfect. For Pinot Noir lovers, French style pork is a perfect partner. Red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah & Zinfandel have bold tannins & a rustic taste that pairs with charcuterie with similar smoky flavors.
