Cheese and Wine Pairing from Around the World

Do you love your cheese and wine?  If so you probably already have your favorite pairings already established.  However, when you take a trip around the world and try some you haven't thought of before maybe you would change your mine.  Today we will be looking at soft cheese, semi-soft cheese, semi-hard cheese, and hard cheese along with there appropriate wine partners.  Our taste buds tingle just thinking about it.  Soft cheese are primarily made from raw milk and spoil faster than the harder cheeses.  These cheeses are generally not used in cooking much but instead are spread on bread and crackers.  Semi-soft cheese is made from pasteurized or raw milk.  They are used for cooking more often because they can more easily be shredded.  Semi-hard cheese are very similar to semi-soft cheese by the way they are made.  However, they generally are smellier and crumble easier.  Hard cheeses have a strong flavor and fragrance.  They are very easy to grate and are salty and sharp.  Now that we have the cheese separated into different types we need some wine to pair it with.  In order to visualize this properly you should look at this article.  After reading this article tell us your favorite cheese and wine pair.  Also were there any other pairings you would like to try from the article?  Let us know.
