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).
Tempranillo wines pair well with a fairly broad range of cheese types, and not surprisingly, with many of the Iberian types. Sheep milk cheeses seem to be the best types to complement the tobacco and spice flavors of this varietal. Cheeses with a higher salt content generally pair well as do many wash rind cow’s milk cheese. Avoid blue cheese.
