While many people might want the candlelight dinner and romantic setting woo their beloved on Valentine’s Day, another option might ensure that love is on the table. Even if the prose is Cyrano de Bergerac inspired, many people might prefer to stack all the odds in their favor. In that case, the stars would write the perfect wine and cheese pairing for the occasion.

Recently, ALDI released a Valentine’s Day infographic that pairs each Zodiac sign with a particular wine and cheese pairing. Although personal preference should always be a factor, this suggestion could be a fun way to redesign that cheese board for a special event.

Putting aside whether or not an air sign is compatible with an earth sign or a water sign douses the flame of a fire sign, this food and beverage concept can spark a conversation. Even if someone does not know if they are a Cancer or a Virgo, adding a little fun to the flavors keeps the cheese board from becoming boring.

Looking at the ALDI wine and cheese pairing suggestions, the combinations play off common concepts often related to the various Zodiac signs. For example, Libra, with its scales, often prefers balance in life. With this cheese and wine pairing, ALDI suggestions a Belletii Prosecco and Emporium Selection Cheddar Parmesan.

While a classic pairing, there is a nuance to this option The Cheddar Parmesan is slightly complex and a little enticing. When combined with the effervescence of the Belletii Prosecco, it becomes lively. The little bubbles awaken the palate for an experience that envelopes everyone in its charm.

Other pairings are equally compelling. The Taurus pairing of Peaks & Tides Pinot Noir and ALDI Cave Aged Cheddar are all the indulgences of the finer things. The luscious red wine awakens the sharpness of the cheddar. The dark fruit asks for another sip to further enjoy the complexity of this pairing.

Overall, the ALDI perfect wine and cheese pairing suggestions make for a great guide regardless of people picking their zodiac sign or choosing a pairing of the preference. Destiny may not be written in the stars, but these food and beverage suggestions definitely lead people to a memorable food experience.
