Our Favorite Cheese & Rescue Dog Wines Pairings

Apr 24, 2024 | News, Wines

In this blog, we’re dishing out some paw-sitively perfect pairings that combine the unique flavor profiles of Rescue Dog Wines with cheeses that complement and enhance their characteristics. From the crisp and refreshing whites that dance with soft, creamy fromage to the robust reds that stand up to the boldest of sharp cheeses, these are more than just delicious pairings; they’re a celebration of what we love most about wine and food.

Read on and discover how you can elevate your next wine and cheese night into a memorable, indulgent experience that supports a mission close to our hearts.


2022 Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese

A tangy, creamy goat cheese is the perfect complement to our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc’s elegant floral and citrus notes. We love the crisp, bright bite of the Sauvignon Blanc paired with a crostini topped with whipped goat cheese, a pinch of fresh lemon zest, and a drizzle of olive oil.


2022 Chardonnay and Triple Cream Brie

A soft, silky triple cream brie stands up well to the bright acid of our lightly oaked 2022 Chardonnay. Rich brie accentuates the Chardonnay’s stone fruit flavors and challenges the wine’s silky finish with its own salty, buttery flavor.


2022 Rosé of Pinot Noir and Havarti

Mild and buttery, Havarti pairs well with herbs and fruit with its subtle nuttiness. Try Havarti stacks with honeydew melon and basil to bring out our 2022 Rosé of Pinot Noir’s watermelon and strawberry notes.


2021 Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

Medium– to full-bodied reds tend to be paired with red meats and rich sauces because the tannins in red wines are a great match with flavorful proteins and fat. For that reason, a bold, high-fat aged cheddar is the perfect pairing for our 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon. The robust, fatty cheddar balances the Cabernet’s tannins, bringing the wine’s subtle plum and chocolate flavors to the forefront.


NV Demi-Sec and Blue Cheese

A Demi-Sec, meaning “semi-sweet,” inspires us to enjoy cheese for dessert. Our NV Méthode Champenoise Demi-Sec is perfect with a mild blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola dolce. Add a poached pear to further elevate the pairing.


We hope you enjoy these delightful pairings as much as our team does. Cheers to good wine, delicious cheese, and the beloved rescue dogs that inspire us every day.
