Cheese & Wine Soup. Rich, Creamy, Delicious, Brilliant. Made with Sharp Cheddar & White Wine – perfect for dipping with crusty bread.
Wine and cheese lovers, rejoice!
Off the top of my head, without hesitation, I can list my favorite foods and drinks.
I love all of the above. I love them all equally. I could eat them everyday for the rest of my life and be a very happy woman. I prefer the good quality stuff, but I can joyfully make do with the basics.
Slow down, you say. We’re supposed to be talking about soup here.
Ohhh, but I am. A soup so delicious, so perfect for the wine & cheese enthusiast, that I almost have to remind myself that I’m not dreaming.
Today, folks, I’ll introduce you to a (not so secret) love of mine. Cheese & Wine Soup. Yup, you read that right. Get ready to fall head over heels.
It’s so simple to make, you’ll wonder why you haven’t already made it. It’s so delicious, you’ll be almost confused on how you haven’t tasted it before.
You can whip this soup up in about an hour. For the best of the best, grab the nicest chunk of sharp cheddar you can spring for. Your tastebuds will thank you for it 🙂
Serve this soup immediately. Cut up a loaf of fresh crusty bread and get to dipping. It’s perfect. Think port wine cheese – but far more refined, lighter, creamier and in soup form.
Oh, how I love this Cheese & Wine Soup and I’m betting you will too! Enjoy!

Cheese. Bread. Dark Chocolate. Wine. They are mine favorite too, Amanda! This soup looks and sounds so comforting and so delish.
We’d get along wonderfully, Anu! Everyone is trying to cut out carbs these days – I could never!!! Thanks, I love this soup – it’s wonderful with a good loaf of bread 🙂
My husband just passed by and asked me to make this (he was tweeting it for me) on the weekend when it is cooler. So, this has my family’s seal of approval!! 🙂
Yay!!! I can’t wait for you to try it – hope you and your husband love it 🙂
Love cheese soup, I bet this is wonderful!
Thanks Angie! We love this soup…I could seriously eat it everyday 🙂
from reading posts , nobody has actually made this soup , I’m making it now , switched parm for ched ,
The cheese never dissolved , so it came out kind of runny with lumps . My fault for using parm but it was getting old and I wanted to use the brick up . I would suggest putting spices in after all is said and done on top of your bowl , I thought is was a wee bit spicy . I would try it again
Hi Paul! Glad it kinda worked out for you 🙂 You definitely need a good melting cheese for this soup if you’re not using cheddar! Thanks for stopping by!
Delicious! Followed recipe exactly as written, it’s perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing.
Hi Mike! Thank you! so glad you enjoyed the soup!
Thanks for stopping by!
The aroma was wonderful, cheese, creamy and flavorful rich..very nice!
Hello! I normally don’t post reviews or comment on recipes but I felt compelled to for this one because it quickly became my favorite soup ever. And I’m a huge soup lover! The flavor is soooo savory. I made it twice the first week I discovered it a couple months back and I’ve made it countless times since then. The first time I made it, I didn’t have any dry white wine on hand so I subbed in some dry white cider and apple cider vinegar. Turned out amazing! It’s great with wine as well but I almost prefer the cider version and that’s usually how I make it now. Thank you for the recipe!
