The aroma can be associated with winter holiday seasons, but apple cider is delicious any time of year when paired with mild cheddar cheese.
Start mild and finish strong: When assembling a cheese tray, arrange cheeses from mildest to strongest.
Consider pairing Monterey Jack with a Pinot Noir or Riesling.
Wine and cheese from the same regions make very good pairings. Following this idea, try pairing Black Diamond cheese with wines from Ontario’s Prince Edward County.
