Manchego is a crowd-pleaser and a mainstay on cheese boards around the world, but if you really want it to shine, complement it with Idiazabal & Mahón cheeses, and other Spanish delights to create a tapas-style spread. I like to pair this board with Spanish rioja to match the creamy Manchego and complement the fatty chorizo, briny Spanish olives, and salty Marcona almonds.

Wine & Tapas Pairing Recommendations

This board is from my new deck: The Wine & Cheese Board Deck! It’s all about wine & cheese pairings… here’s a little taste:

Rioja, a mostly tempranillo-based red blend from northern Spain, has cherry, plum, and leather tasting notes. Pro tip: The rioja crianza level (aged for two years) is a solid value pick, but you can splurge for the rioja reserva level (aged three years) for not much more. 

For white wine drinkers, try a citrusy albariño or txakoli, a lightly sparkling Spanish wine
