Pairing food + wine the correct way can make all the difference when it comes to the taste of both the food and the vino! So, what is your go-to food + wine pairing? We asked the Bright Cellars employees this question and it was no doubt in their mind that cheese + wine would be number one.

The Results

Well the Bright Cellars crew got it kind of right this time! Here are the results:
  • 43.6% of respondents said their favorite pairing is cheese + wine.
  • 21.7% of respondents said their favorite vino pairing is red meat + wine.
  • 17.2% of respondents said their #1 pairing is pasta + wine.
  • 9.0% of respondents said their favorite pairing is chocolate + wine.
  • 5.1% of respondents said their fav pairing is fish + wine.
  • 3.4% of respondents said their favorite wine pairing is vegetarian/vegan food + wine
It is clear that people enjoy their cheese + wine! That doesn’t come as a surprise to us. Cheese is a great drinking buddy snack. Not only does cheese taste great with a perfectly paired glass of wine but it can also help prevent wine teeth when drinking red wine! Seems like a win-win situation to us! Along with the Glass Half Full readers, we asked Bright Cellars’ Instagram followers the same question. Here are some of our favorite responses!
  • Wine + wine I mean cheese
  • Pasta! In fact any noodle dish! Stir fries, ramen, pad thai, etc.
  • Option G: All of the Above!
  • ???? + ????
Overall the answers were pretty much the same! Many felt that cheese + wine were their #1 food and wine pairing, and who can blame them?
