Wine & Cheese Pairings

So You’ve Got a… Red Zinfandel

With deep fruit and exotic spice flavors, Red Zinfandel can range from lighter-bodied to fuller-bodied, leading it to compliment a variety of cheeses. 

Lighter-bodied Zins can pair nicely with milder cheeses, such as mild Cheddar and Gouda.  Fuller-bodied Zins can stand up to bolder cheeses, such as aged Gruyere and aged Cheddar.  Because Zinfandel is sweet and fruity, it compliments aged, salty cheeses very well.  Try some Parmigiano-Reggiano, Asiago, or Blue Cheeses with your next bottle of Zin!

The Bottle King and Vineyard Market staffs would love you help you pick out the perfect wine and cheese pairing, so if you’re ever unsure just ask us!
