Does Rosé Prosecco Pair With Cheese?
17th March 2023
This is a question that needs to be answered immediately, the love for Rosé Prosecco is unwavering and the love for cheese is eternal, and we all know that pairing Prosecco and Cheese works wonders on the palate, so why shouldn’t the delicate touch of red berries and pink blossom from a Rosé Prosecco accompany a selection of quality hard and soft cheese in a similar fashion.
In this feature, we take Bisol 1542’s marvellous Rosé Prosecco DOC and accompany it was some finely crafted cheese from the Cheesemongers of Cambridge, Rennet & Rind Cheese.
The Rosé Prosecco
Bisol has a history dating back to 1542. 5 centuries and 21 generations have worked on creating great-tasting wines. The only time Bisol was interrupted was during World War I, the Valdobbiadene territory (where Bisol is located) stood right on the battle lines between the Austrian-Hungarian forces and their opponents, the Italians, but in 1920 they were back on track and once again pushing the boundaries and bringing people’s taste buds forward into the future.

Mayfield & Rosé Prosecco – “A subtle pink touch of cherry blossom, ginger and red apple skin greet the marvellous cheese characters, you don’t lose any of the amazing cheese characters with the pairing, just an added bonus from the Prosecco. This is a real quality English cheese.”
Old Winchester & Rosé Prosecco – “A palate cleanser initially, with the Prosecco then gifting red apple skins, pink rose petals and cherry blossom to all the quality English cheese flavours.”
Appleby’s Cheshire & Rosé Prosecco – “A crumbly cheese, the Prosecco, unfortunately, doesn’t make much of an impression, it enters and leaves faint notes of pink blossom and red apple skins, but otherwise, the cheese takes precedence overall.”
The Duke & Rosé Prosecco – “The Prosecco delicately touches on the blue cheese, the cheese brings out a sweeter side to the Prosecco initially, then the cheese comes back into play, gifting a flavour of a deep wine cellar, with the dampness/mushroom, cold air character, a lovely expression on the cheese.”
Hampshire Cheese Co – Tunworth & Rosé Prosecco – “Pink blossom initially, then fades after the mid-palate and leaves the saline characters from the creaminess of the cheese, although they work together for a moment, they don’t pair together for long.”
