What’s left to elevate your dish? A glass of wine, of course! To highlight these flavors, Xinomavro PDO Naoussa is the perfect choice! With its rich aroma of black fruits and spices, intense flavor, and high acidity, Xinomavro releases the cheese’s flavors and allows the fruit flavors to emerge.

Some combinations you should try:        

  1. Soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert with fruits like berries or blackberries for a sweet and creamy taste.
  2. Hard cheeses like Cheddar or Parmigiano Reggiano paired with nuts and dried figs for a saltier and spicier flavor.
  3. A popular combination in Greece is feta cheese and watermelon, which pairs perfectly with Xinomavro. The salty and creamy feta cheese is complemented by the wine’s red fruit notes, bringing out the freshness of the watermelon.
  4. Parmesan or Gruyere cheese with strawberries and grapes. The spicy taste of parmesan and the salty taste of gruyere combine well with the sweetness of the fruit and the acidity of Xinomavro PDO Naoussa.
