Wine and Cheeses


  • fresh – light white wines, for example Müller-Thurgau, Sylvaner, Grüner Veltliner
  • buttery cheeses, cheese patés – Neuburger, blush or rosé wines
  • cheeses with white mould – light, dry wines from Pinot Gris
  • sliced cheeses – very full and round white wines, blush or rosé wines, light Pinot Noir
  • cheeses with dark mould – mature red wines, though not too tannic, special selection of berries
  • cheeses having a very distinctive taste – rich and well-structured tannic red wines

Food is a necessity, but matching it with wine is an art. Creativity is on your side. We wish you many wonderful ideas, plenty of inspiration and a fortunate hand in your wine selection. Do not, though, forget our fine Moravian and Bohemian wines.
