PAWLING, N.Y .-- One of the best ways to entertain guests and enjoy a light meal with family and friends is to host a wine and cheese gathering. While pairing wine and cheese has become an age-old tradition, many wonder how to pick cheeses that complement each wine. Below the experts at Wineology offer some advice on how to put together the perfect pairs.

First of all, there is usually a marching order when it comes to starting and ending a wine and cheese tasting. Begin with a lighter wines like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, then gradually work your way up to the more distinct tasting wines like Cabernet and Merlot. This will allow you and your guests to fully enjoy all the different flavors you are experiencing.

The same rule applies to the cheese. Make sure you have the lighter, softer cheeses in the beginning, Brie for example, then work up to the harder, stronger-tasting cheeses like Cheddar or Gouda. There are many different wine and cheese pairings that work, but following these suggestions will make the experience much more enjoyable.

While some wine and cheese parties offer multiple pairing selections, you can never go wrong by steering guests in a specific direction. Remember, it's all up to the host to decide which options to present and sometimes it's best to go bold. Ending the night with a strong flavor pairing such as Chianti wine and Parmesan cheese will leave your guests satisfied.

Uncork the fun this summer by finding the perfect wine to take home at Wineology. Visit the store in Pawling or call (845) 855-8463 to learn more.
