Cheddar Riesling Soup

Recently, I was working on a dinner party menu and wanted to serve soup for the first course.  Since the days are getting cooler, I wanted to serve the soup on our porch near our chimenea with a crackling fire burning.  I also decided to serve soft pretzels along with the soup.  This soup turned out delicious, creamy and light, and just the accompaniment for dipping pretzels or crusty bread.
