Harvest Season Pairing: Alpine-Style Cheese And Alsatian Wine (as seen in Forbes)
"Alpine-style cheese is semi-firm, smooth and consistent. Flavors are often nutty, fruity or spicy -- think of Appenzeller, Gruyère or Emmentaler as classic examples. Alpine-style cheese is also ideal for a cheese plate or in the fondue pot and it shines when paired with Alsatian wines such as Crémant d'Alsace, Reisling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir."
