When it comes to red, white, and blue, we have red and white wines, but you have to fill in with some blue foods to get the whole color palate as blue wines don’t exist yet — or do they? To help you cover all of your American colors, here are some wine pairings for some of these most popular blue foods.
White: The sweetness in an off dry Riesling complements the pungent flavors of the cheese.
Red: A fruity red with a lower alcohol percentage won’t compete with the intensity of the blue cheese and will have enough richness to make the food and wine taste better.
White: As a highly aromatic grape, the fruity qualities of Viognier pair nicely with most fruits, including blueberries.
