As it is in GB - there's even a World Cheese Awards cheesemonger of the year competition.

It's a lovely old word, we still have fishmongers, ironmongers and a few costermongers (who sell fruit and veg -and nowadays mostly work in the wholesale markets such as Covent Garden now. "Coster" or "Costard" was an old name for a variety of apple).

(Sorry, you can take the woman out of teaching but you can't take teaching out of the woman, as a "beau" of my younger days used to say!)

I have no idea how expert these guys are, but for what it's worth, my local supermarket had this in their flyer the other day (trying to avoid brand names here):

Reds pair with Parmesan.

Chadonnay pairs with something called Comte cheese. Your guess is as good as mine.

Merlot pairs with blue cheese.

Riesling pairs with Gold Cheese. ?

Prosecca pairs with Mozzarella.

Rose pairs with Brie.

And since I know as much about wine as I do about cheese, I have no idea if any of those wines could be called a Sommelier.

Good luck!

Do Brits use the term "green grocer" for someone who sells fruit and veg? It's sometimes used here in Montreal. I imagine some younger people just think it's an environmentally friendly grocer.
