Unbottled

Picture this: you’re standing in the grocery store, looking at the bottle of wine in your hand and wondering which cheese would pair nicely with it.

You’ve got an occasion coming up - a date, dinner party, or night of self-care - and the pressure to make the right decision is throwing your mind into a stalemate. We’ve all been there, and the team at Unbottled knows the struggle. Formed by a collection of local Idaho and Utah dairies, Dairy West, knew there had to be a solution to the constant question of "what cheese pairs nicely with this wine?”

Not only will their extensive software help you discover what cheese compliments a nice wine, but a cheese from a local dairy farmer. Head to Unbottled.com to take their Matchmaker quiz.

Once you select the cheese or wine you know you would like to consume, like a red Cabernet Sauvignon, the Matchmaker will give you a brief description of the wine and tell you what type of cheese it's known to pair well with. The same technology applies if you choose a cheese first or are looking for a pairing with beer or cider as well.

You can trust each result with the knowledge that there is an expert team of food scientists behind every answer. The results are tried and tested and aim to connect you with talented artisanal cheese makers from around the area.
