Sparkling Beverages pair very well with soft ripened cheeses, the effervescence of the wine or cider blends well with the creaminess of the cheese and accents the characteristics of the cheese.
Use cheese wire, skeleton knife to cut the cheese, also cutting the cheese when cold will aid in clean precise cuts.
