For some, fondue might be the preferred way to enjoy cheese, bread, and a flight of wine with friends; however, others may object and insist that the delicious melty raclette cheese dish is best! High-acidity wines are a perfect pairing so any Anderson Valley wine from your cellar will work well.
The word raclette comes from the French word racler, meaning to scrape, and Raclette is a specific semi-soft cheese made from the raw milk of cows known for its melting ability. Similar to the geographical wine areas (e.g. Champagne) Raclette is protected by AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) and it is now made all over the world.
