Charcuterie Cheese that pairs with Port

Port falls into two broad categories: ruby ports, characterized by intense, red fruit and berry flavors; and tawny ports, distinguished by their mellow, nutty, butterscotch and caramel essences. Port is the world's greatest fortified wine, produced in the valley of the Duoro River, East of Oporto in Northern Portugal. I have enjoyed Port and Cheese together since the early 80's. Visiting Madera was a true highlight, try Ginjinha when you are there.

Charcuterie Cheeses to Pair with Port wines hand-picked the following FOUR cheeses to complement Port wines.

Fourme D'Ambert: Cave-aged for a minimum of two months, Fourme d'Ambert is made from raw cow's milk and has a tremendous, creamy, full-bodied flavor. Imported from France. (7.5 oz.)

  • Royal Blue Stilton: Long known as "The King of Cheeses", it is one a handful of British cheeses granted the status of a "protected designation origin" (PDO) by the European Commission. Crumbly, intense, and slightly funky. (7.5 oz.)

Wexford Mature Cheddar: This Irish Cheddar from Wexford brings together the finest milk along with expert aging techniques. The company's heritage of cheese making and its time tested recipe produces a cheddar of unmistakable quality and character. (7.5 oz.)

Agour Ossau-Iraty: A slightly oily texture gives way to a creamy, buttery quality in the mouth, with hints of herbs and fruit.(7.5 oz.)
