In our first blog article of this month, we shared three very special cheese from Italy that can be enjoyed by themselves, over salads or pasta, and also part of platters for the whole family. In this edition, we will recommend some wines that complement the cheese trio (Parmigiano Reggiano, Grana Padano and Sbiancato Hard Cheese).
For the Parmesan family (Parmigiano Reggiano and Grana Padano), we highlight several wines that are a perfect fit, such as Chianti, Pinot Noir, Malbec, Syrah, Champagne, Prosecco and Riseling. These wines have a dimension and flavour profile that blend into the fruity, nutty taste of these two cheese.
At The French Grocer, we have an exquisite wine corner where you’d find several varieties of the abovementioned wines to pair with the Parmesan family.
Languedoc-Rousillon Moulin de Grassac Red Syrah:
