Wine & Cheese Pairing Video: What Is Your Favourite?

Click on the arrow above to watch the video right here.

Such a great discussion with lots of favourite pairings and tips!

We’ll have a second chat this Wednesday, November 14th at 8 pm eastern – mark your calendar!

Please note that while these two feedback sessions about pairing wine and cheese are on Facebook, the course itself will NOT be … so don’t let that stop you from joining me in the course in early December ;)

You can also watch the video on Facebook, read the latest comments that keep coming in, read my answers and make a comment yourself ;)

I love reading them all and will respond!

Wendy Crispell32:49 Aged Gouda can be almost carmelized in flavor. Also can have super crunchy texture. Roomano is one of these styles. Bigger reds or full bodied whites.
Jamal Uddin0:00 Do you have to have different wine with different cheese or Pinot Noir will bring out the best in all of them!


Donna Mae Wason0:00 What is an exclusive Beta group? How would members meet via privately online sessions ?
Nancy Douglas2:25 Hi Natalie, “accidentally” found your facebook live event tonight. Tried to post a comment but that didn’t seem to work. Seemed like a dynamic group. Good idea. Short course. Mid November best. Joined you on Facebook so will hopefully get your updates. Cheers.

Deborah Podurgiel29:45 melted brie with sauteed Portobello mushrooms and thyme is great with an earthy Pinot Noir. Another might be a more full-bodied Cab Franc with a melted brie and berry dish

Deborah Podurgiel20:38 Alex de Portneuf Pacific Rock seems to go with a lot. Oka Classique is another that goes along with some more full-bodied red wines — the wine season in which we are in *(*. Nice and savoury. I had a fantastic taleggio the Italian wine presentation in Vancouver. It went with just about everything and was quite surprised how well it fit with some of the crisper whites

Jorge Odam10:44 Hey Natalie, I think this is great idea, wine does pair very well with cheese.


Lois Gilbert37:26 cheese boutique in toronto
Nathan Hill4:13 Here is a good site for the US that will ship to you.
Brent Gushowaty19:01 I think that you could get bogged down on any kind of theory of wine and cheese pairings given that there are thousands of kinds of cheeses (goat, sheep, cow, various rinds etc.) and so many styles of wine but you could certainly give lots of good pairing suggestions and probably keep it to cheeses that are readily available. But I think what would be most helpful to a lot of people is a focus on presentation, how to do a wine and cheese party, cheese tools, plates and utensils, how to cut various cheeses, serving temperatures,the back stories on the cheeses, where do find specialty cheese shops in your area and more.
Randy Thompson1:40 Hi Natalie. I’m from Mississauga and my wife and I enjoy J Lahr Cab Sav.


Cynthia Boyne44:41 Enjoyed the chat. Thanks Natalie
