Pairing Wine with Cheesecake
Wine and cheesecake can go well together, but it can be tricky. Generally speaking, cheesecake and wine only work if they complement each other well. Because cheesecake is sweet, the wine can rob the cheesecake of its flavors, and vice versa. Matching the right wine to the right cheesecake takes a little bit of research and skill.
Most of the time, the wine should be at least as sweet the dessert. However, a wine that is too sweet can be sweetness overload in some situations. You cannot go wrong with a sparkling, sweet beverage, no matter what kind of cheesecake you serve.
We have a few suggestions for some of our most popular cheesecakes.
- New York Cheesecake. If you are serving this classic cheesecake plain, try pairing it with a sweet Riesling or a late harvest Sauvignon Blanc. A Pinot Grigio might be a good option as well. On the other hand, if you are topping your cheesecake with berries, you might want to try a Cabernet Franc ice wine..
- Crème Brulée Cheese. This amazing cheesecake is not only one of our lightest options, it also features a burnt caramel topping that is simply amazing. Try pairing this sweet, creamy option with a Picolit. It is sure to complement the sweet tastes well.
A great alternative is to serve champagne instead! Champagne is sure to be a great pairing no matter the flavor of your cheesecake, from cheese to fruit to chocolate.
