"The Cheese Nun" for a wine & cheese party

At last I've got my hands on the documentary film "The Cheese Nun", which follows an American nun on a Fulbright to study artisanal cheese-making in France. A perfect foil for a cheese tasting party!

From the synopsis, I understand that Sister Noella represents the cheesemakers from the abbey Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, but the film follows her to Auvergne, France where they make St. Nectaire. I don't want to spoil the surprise by watching the film ahead of my cheese-tasting party, so I am looking to hounds to help me plan ahead.

What are your suggestions for cheeses related to those in the film? And wine? I am in New York and can get to Murray's cheese shop (expensive!) and Chelsea market.
