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?

Blue Cheese

Blue Cheese

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.

Blueberries

White: As a highly aromatic grape, the fruity qualities of Viognier pair nicely with most fruits, including blueberries.

Red: A Pinot Noir has a light body for a red wine, so it won’t overpower the blueberries.
