New and exciting cheeses?

I saw the Ted Allan show 'Food Detectives' this past week, and they did an interesting segment on the making of fine (moldy) cheeses. I'm pretty new to the whole wine and cheese scene, but I'm pretty sick of the common grocery store staple cheeses. Does anyone have any suggestions for cheese/wine pairings to get me started? What about classic recipes that highlight a particular new and exciting cheese? Enlighten me. I thirst for culture :) I'm open to trying anything...even the stinky cheeses!
