A great grilled cheese sandwich is like a painter’s canvas, waiting only for inspiration to become a masterpiece.
Winderlea & Grilled Cheese
Winderlea Winery is a B Corporation certified Winery from Portland, OR. Their Chardonnay shines with a complex blend of aromatics – with a bright lemon and creamy quality that perfectly compliments the World’s Best Cheddar in this simple grilled cheese with spinach and fresh tomatoes.
Red Wine & Grilled Cheese
Who would have thought that red wine would be the perfect accompaniment to a grilled cheese sandwich?
When adding any sort of “green” like pesto or arugula, go with a light bodied wine with some acid like a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. Sweet whites like Riesling or Moscato pair nicely with any sandwich with a spicy kick.
Light to medium-bodied red, with reasonable acidity like a Pinot Noir or Merlot works well with any combination of Cheddar and turkey, ham or bacon sandwich.
When in doubt go with a full-bodied white like Chardonnay. The wine complements the buttery bread. Bubbly goes with any cheese and sandwich, any time.

Wine and cheese is taken to a whole new level when the wine is white and the cheese is in one of these refined grilled cheese sandwiches.
Whether you’re making an easy late night supper or feeding friends for lunch, white wine with a grilled cheese sandwich makes it an effortless and elegant event. Enjoy a yummy grilled cheese with your favorite white wine today.
