Wine & Cheese Pairings

You might be surprised to know that cheese was historically used to "improve" a bad wine. And as the quality of wine made centuries ago would be unrecognizable today, cheese was helpful by smoothing out the coarseness one would expect. As time marched on, and local cuisines were consumed with local wines, certain wine and cheese "classic pairings" evolved.
