The UK retail giant has created the ultimate wine and cheese pairing guide based on astrology.
The ultimate snack: Exquisite Collection Rosé and Emporium Selection Camembert
Born from flowing air and sensible tastes, the camembert is a sure-fire way to any Aquarius’ heart. Dressed to the nines in a bloomy, edible rind and creamy texture, this cheese is date ready for the rosé, adorned in notes of watermelon and strawberry.
The ultimate snack: Villanella Pinot Grigio and Emporium Selection Gruyere
For the passionate and imaginative Pisces, the gruyere delivers a down-to-earth, nutty flavour that appeals to their sensitive side. It’s a perfect partner to balance the wine’s sweet notes.
The ultimate snack: Outlander Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Reserve White Cheddar
The cheddar is an award-winning favourite with a big hunky presence, just like the ambitious Aries. The wine’s fruity flavours and acidity cut deliciously through the aged cheddar’s sharpness.
The ultimate snack: Peaks & Tides Pinot Noir and Aldi Cave Aged Cheddar
The perfect pairing for Taureans, who know a thing or two about the finer things in life. Straight from the Sonoma Coast, the complex wine features tones of dark fruit, a match made in heaven for sharp aged cheddar.
The ultimate snack: Sunshine Bay Sauvignon Blanc and Emporium Selection Goat Cheese
A great snack for the playful, curious Gemini. Bringing the outdoors in, with the cheese’s unique flavour pairing with the wine’s refreshing notes of citrus and fresh green grass.
The ultimate snack: Landshut Riesling and Emporium Selection Fondue
A creamy, dippable classic for the homey and nurturing Cancer, topped out with a semi-sweet Riesling from Mosel in Germany.
The perfect snack: 30 Miles Cabernet Sauvignon and Emporium Selection Artisan Cheddar Assortment
For lovably dramatic Leos, a collection of flavoured cheddars and its flavourful soul sister to make an impression at any party.
The ultimate snack: Exquisite Collection Malbec and Emporium Selection Parmesan
The traditional process of making parmesan is as methodical as the highly efficient Virgo and delivers a tangy, nutty and sharp flavour that’s ideal with the rich fruity tones of the Malbec.
The ultimate snack: Belletii Prosecco and Emporium Selection Cheddar Parmesan
All the same characteristics as Libra: charming, beautiful and perfectly balanced.
The ultimate snack: Intermingle Cabernet Sauvignon and Emporium Selection Blue
Often misperceived due to its intensity, the blue is ideal for the mysterious Scorpio. Equally intense is the cab sav that has been aged in French oak barrels.
The ultimate snack: Grande Alberone Moscato D'asti and Brie
Like the Saggi, brie is a cheese that demonstrates that it can be wise and intelligent, while also being the life of the party. And paired with the Moscato – pleasantly sweet, balanced and harmonious – it’s love at first bite.
The ultimate snack: William Wright Pinot Noir and Emporium Selection Semi-Soft Gouda
For the perfectly practical Capricorn, a handsomely traditional cheese that goes well with the pinot noir. And with a retail price of $2.99, it doesn't get much more practical than that.
