Which wine pairs well with roquefort?

Pinot Grigio Alto Adige DOC
The rounded, harmonious Pinot Grigio brings out all of the savoury vibrance of the speck and Roquefort to perfection. The ideal pairing for this dish.

Gewürztraminer Alto Adige DOC
With its slight residual sweetness, the youthful Gewürztraminer makes an exciting contrast to the spiciness of the speck and the bitter note of the cheese.


Step 1

Peel and seed the melon. Blend half, and cube the other half.

Step 2

For the batter: beat the egg and flour together, add water.

Step 3

Cube the Roquefort, dip in the batter and fry in hot oil. Dry using kitchen paper.

Step 4

To a serving dish add blended melon, followed by melon cubes. Add the sliced Speck and top with Roquefort croquettes.
