The amount of cheese to buy depends on the occasion. We suggest 3 traditional courses to organize a wine and cheese tasting. We usually start with cheeses that are mild and move to stronger ones.

  • To serve as an aperitif or at the end of a meal: 45 to 60 grams per person
  • To serve at happy hour: 90 to 150 grams per person
  • To serve as a more substantial tasting: 250 grams per person

Here is a practical formula to help you figure out how many grams per cheese you need to buy:

(Pers. x Qty) ÷ (cheese x Course) = Quantity per cheese

  • Pers. = number of people
  • Qty = recommended quantity per person
  • Cheese = number of cheeses
  • Course = number of courses

It’s been said that wine and cheese are not only the perfect marriage, but the one that never breaks up! The key here is to build up a momentum. And don’t forget to look for the 100% Canadian milk symbol whenever you buy cheese.
