Blue Ledge Farms
Middlebury Blue

$24.99/LB
This zippy blue greets you with a firm handshake, but its Vermont farmstead roots are revealed in down-to-earth grassy flavors and a mellow finish. It's been known to crumble under pressure but luckily it's pear season, and we're in the mood for salad.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

    Full-bodied with no shortage of flavor. This grape is grown in almost every climate, which means lots of diversity across bottles.

    Old World Cabernet: Earthy with aromas of leather, hay, and dark dried fruits. Sometimes a hint of eucalyptus or violet.
    Pair with: Cheese with flavor that can stand up to this big wine. Alpine style cheeses like Comte or Appenzeller and some sweeter blues like Bleu d’Auvergne would make a good match.

    New World Cabernet: Characterized by bold oaky flavors and high levels of tannins. These wines are about as full-bodied as you can get, very jammy with flavors of reduced fruit.
    Pair with: Sweet clothbound cheddar or a Grana style cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano or Podda Classico.

     

  • Merlot

    A smooth and medium-bodied wine with a more rounded flavor than other reds. Dark fruits are present but with minimal tannins and no noticeable spice.
    Pair with: Earthy tommes like Toma Walser, mellow Fontina, or a lightly aged goat cheese like Leonora.

  • Bourbon

    Think: Caramelly, crystalline cheeses have the strength to stand up to bolder booze. With sweet bourbon, these cheeses become almost like dessert.

  • Wheat Beers

    Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit

    Pair with: Bright, tangy goat’s milk cheeses like Westfield Capri and buttery bloomy rinds like Nettle Meadow Kunik.
