    I like wine and I like cheese! And for many people they naturally go together. I usually like a heavy red wine with a strong cheddar, or a medium white with some light cheese like Jarlsberg.

    Do you like cheese and wine, and if so what types do you like together??

    Red wine and any nice cheese. Need some decent crackers, too.

    I LOVE cheese and wine.

    A really nice heavy red like already mentioned, and pretty much any medium strength cheese. Spiced plum chutney and crackers are essential!

    I'm trying to eat healthy at the moment so not had it for a while, since christmas infact

    You know cheese actually goes better with beer. Beer has a wider range of flavours to complement the wide variety of cheese available.

    I prefer it with wine, not just because there is the expectation that it's sophisticated but the taste is bitter sweet when compared with beer. Not that I dislike beer, infact some German weisse beers are good with cheese, but in general I prefer it with wine.
