Compose a well-balanced cheese flight with a variety of flavors, textures and milk types using our easy-to-follow Artisanal CheeseClock™. Our cheeses are complex – arranging them from mild to strong and pairing with the right beverage should not be.
Each quarter of the CheeseClock™ is associated with several varieties of wines, beers and champagnes. While it is difficult to make generalizations about pairings, over the years we tried hundreds or so for some helpful recommendations. Select one or two cheeses from each quarter of the clock, or let us do the work for you with our best at-peak cheeses in the
CheeseClock Collection (All-in-One) or
CheeseClock Collection (Red Tin).

Pairing Cheese with Sauternes
Fine Sauternes, sometimes referred to as the “Nectar of the Gods,” work so well with so many cheese types that there are few that clash at all! Because these wines are especially viscous and sweet, they are best reserved for cheese types that really require that level of sweetness - especially blue cheeses. Also, cheeses with a high salt concentration, such as washed-rind or certain aged cow milk cheeses, can make an excellent pair with Sauternes.
