Cheese is the glue that holds life together and life finally makes sense thanks to some beyond brilliant French scientists who have recently confirmed that wine really does taste better with cheese. As if we needed another reason, right?
Cue the cheese dreams because we have found 5 of the best places to eat cheese and drink wine in Sydney.
10 William Street
10 William Street is the ultimate neighbourhood wine bar. Small, dark and intimate, sample some of the best cheese to come out of Italy with plenty of complementary antipasto options and endless bottles of the finest wine.
Wine and Cheese Thursdays do exist and they exist at Bar Chinois in Chippendale. They also exist every other day of the week, but we just like that there’s a designated day. Get your weekly dose of creamy goodness with a selection of Chinois cheeses served the French way, with a freshly baked baguette.
Whoever says wine and cheese is not a proper meal is 100% wrong. If you’re in the CBD and craving all things cheese, Restaurant Hubert is where you need to be. Complete with a grand piano and French influenced wine list, you know you’re in good hands.
The Stinking Bishops
With over 40 hand selected cheeses, The Stinking Bishops is pretty much king of the cheese. All cheese boards come with quince paste, grapes, fig and walnut rolada, a basket of bread and every type of cracker you can think of, so all you need to do is sit back and watch the world go by while enjoying a red (or white), that tastes better because of the cheese.
Cake Wines Cellar Door
Sydney’s first winery cellar door, Cake Wines, sure does know a lot about cheese. With a selection of cured meats, cheeses, olives and lavosh, a simple cheese board comes to life to complement the vino and satisfy any true wine and cheese supporter.
