DJANGO RECOMMENDS: Wine And Cheese Pairings

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Michael Crownover from Django, a Des Moines restaurant, showed some tasty ways to pair wine and cheese with your holiday guests.

One combination is a goat cheese with a classic chardonnay. Crownover recommended the Capricho de cabra Spanish goat milk's cheese with a Pedroncelli Napa Valley chardonnay.  The two together help add a crisp flavor and enhance the cheese.

Another combination is a bleu cheese with a Syrah or Shiraz wine.  Crownover recommended the Gorgonzola Dolce cheese with a Cotes du Rhone wine, adding a fruity quality to the creamy cheese.

A classic and local combination is a white cheddar to a zinfandel.  Mountain Creamery makes a great white cheddar that goes great with any zinfandel wine.
