Gorgonzola Wine Pairing

The ‘off-dry, semi-fizzy’ Lambrusco Salamino matches the subtle sweetness of Gorgonzola. It has a lower alcohol content of 8% making an interesting change to the big reds and ports more commonly paired with cheese.

Wine number two? How about the award-winning Ca’ Vegar Custoza DOC Garganega blend white wine. Quality is key with this wine, and you can definitely tell with its pear and tropical fruit aroma and flavours. It definitely has the capability of standing up to the strong, stunning taste of Gorgonzola Dolce DOP.
