Champagne Cheddar

Thanks to the name of our blog, we tend to get a common question this time of year: what cheeses pair best with Champagne? It’s no secret that we love bloomy rinds with sparkling wines, but we can usually find a few other cheeses to suggest as well. Our friends at Whole Foods took another approach to answering this question this year — and put champagne in the cheese. Their new release is available now through Valentine’s Day for all your celebratory needs.

Champagne Cheddar is produced for Whole Foods in England. A traditional 10-month cheddar is mixed with champagne, pressed and aged a little longer. The result is a moist, creamy cheese that begins with the classic cheddar bite but ends with a yeasty, fruity twist. Enjoy it with fruit and, yes, more champagne.

Disclosure: Whole Foods PR sent a hefty wheel of this cheese and bottle of champagne for the purposes of this review; no other compensation was received and all opinions are our own.
