Wines To Watch: The BEST Wine And Cheese Pairings To Have After A Meal – By Expat Sommelier Daan Suijlen

It's cheese o' clock!
04 April 2019

Cheese, when paired with a beautiful bottle of wine, is the ultimate finish to a long meal.

I love to end my meal with a nice piece of cheese which should perfectly complement my wine. In fact, it doesn’t even have to be a dessert wine. It can be any type of wine – as long as it pairs well with the cheese.

It’s a bit of a challenge to get the right match, but once you understand the rules, it is rather simple. We paired up with the wonderful Basilico in the Regent Hotel to discover the best cheese and wine pairing. Basilico offers a cheese night every Wednesday where they have more than 40 different cheeses.

This varies from fresh cheeses to strong and firm ones, some are house infused and all have a great story. We picked 3 different cheeses to explain everything about which wines and cheeses pair well. Basilico also offers a Formaggio e Vino every last Wednesday of the month (April, June, August, October and December)
