Here's Why Wine & Cheese Taste So Good Together

Ever wonder why wine and cheese taste so good together? Why they are the perfect match made in heaven? Why they make each other taste better? Well, there is actually a science (and history) behind it! Records dating back hundreds of years show us that wine and cheese have been served together for generations. It is believed among wine historians that the concept of pairing wine and cheese originated in the early winemaking days of France. 

 

THE SCIENCE

 

Science tells us that pairing foods and beverages that taste similar to one another improves the experience and that the similarities compliment one another, but the opposite can also be true! The fat in cheese and the acidity in wine compliment each other because of that very fact- they are opposites! If you consume fatty or oily foods/beverages, it makes your mouth feel slick, or even slimy. If you consume astringent foods/beverages like green tea and dry wines, it makes your mouth feel rough and dry. But if you consume these different compounds together, it creates a balanced and pleasing. "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth. No wonder cheese and wine pair so perfectly!
