Choosing wine can be overwhelming and intimidating. Not knowing your palette is not uncommon when it comes to this centuries old beverage but once you've identified your tastebud preferences, it becomes easier to navigate. With so many types of wines- Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Grenache, Riesling, Chardonnay, Champagne to name a few- pairing with food can be even more of a headache.

Here's a quick look at how to pair cheese to your wine.

Port and Blue Cheese
Prosecco and Parmesan
Cabernet Sauvignon and Gouda
Chardonnay and Gruyere
Riesling and Ricotta
Malbec and Cheddar
Pinot Noir and Brie
Pinot Grigio and Mozzarella
Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese
Port and Gorgonzola

Of course this is just a suggestion and there are many other combinations that can be done. Usually a soft cheese like Brie or Camembert is paired with lush and sweet wines while stinkier cheeses like Blue and Gorgonzola are often best suited with rich and bold-bodied wines and aperitifs. Also, what you serve it with- apples, grapes, bread and crackers- alters the palette if even just slightly.
