Pairing spanish Wine and Cheese Pairing
Choosing a good Spanish wine and cheese pairing is not easy!
We have more than 80 types of cheese, with 23 of them classified as Protected Designation of Origin (D.O.P – Denominación de Origen Protegida), and 69 types of wine (regions) with the D.O label, according to the respected ICEX, when it comes to buying cheese and a bottle of wine, it can become a dilemma. This is a perfect activity for VIP groups.
Just to mention a local example, with a fresh and dry white wine from the Penedès or even a Rosé, Las ideas de Wendy would recommend a soft pasteurized cow or goat cheese. With a red wine, we would suggest a strong curado goat or sheep cheese, and a blue cheese, could also be a good option. Even more so, a fermented cheese.
Wine is not the only drink that can be paired. You can also pair cheese with beer. For example, a good light beer can be paired with a soft cow cheese.
