Wine and cheese... now what?

Wine and cheese... now what?

cjc519 | Sep 29, 2007 02:47 PM

So I thought I'd do a wine and cheese pairing (which I've never done myself) and I picked out some wines that we like (Albarino, Montepulciano , and Prosecco). I took my list to the cheese market and this is what was recommended...
Brie Brillat Savarin
My questions are: Are you supposed to pair a particular wine with each cheese or do you just enjoy everything together? I also bought a baguette, fresh figs, and some crostini. Do I put this on my cheese platter?

If these wines maybe don't work I've also got Cab, Pinot Noir, Chard, SB and Shiraz. I just thought I'd like to try some that I don't have very often. I'm also making grilled chipotle shrimp... would any of my original wine work with this or do you have a better suggestion. Thanks to anyone who can give me some direction!
