Blue cheese and white wine?

Krys | Feb 10, 2005 04:50 PM

So I have this nice dinner planned tonight ... a selection of olives, a nice blue cheese, a baguette, some fig/olive spread.

I go to a top of the line wine store and ask for a nice wine to go with all of this top of the line food. I learn that red wine, except sweet wines like port, should not be paired with blue cheese. Supposedly the blue cheese will make a wine taste bitter.

Is this true? If so, what white wine would go well with blue cheese?

According to the suggestion at the shop, I bought a Gruner Veitlner. I don't know what all the else of this stuff on the bottle is, but I says Steinwand, Schmelz, Federspiel 2002.

What else would go well with blue cheese / olives?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
