Wine And Food Pairing


The basic golden rule is balance...neither your wine nor your food should be stronger than the other. Choose them to be complimentary to each other. A lightly flavoured dish should have a nice light wine, while food with depth and body can handle some of the heavier, more robust wine varieties. Simply think of your wine as a flavour enhancer, just as you would a spice, and strive not to overpower the tastes of either one. This is the one theme that underlies all the other nuances of food and wine pairings, of which there are many... If you achieve good balance, you have covered all the rest perfectly.

Here is a small list of how to pair wines with Starters and Deserts. My Free Ebook is available to download which will teach you how to pair your wine with all manner of foods and dishes. From Cheeses to Starters and from Meats to Deserts.

Starters etc

Green Vegetables - Chablis or Chardonnay
Caviar - Dry Champagne
Quiche - Pinot Gris, Dry White Burgundy, Pouilly Fume
Soups - Clear broth soups do not pair well with wine. Creamy or rich soups pair well with a Dry White Burgundy. Thick earthy soups pair well with a Pinot Noir or Beaujolais
Fruits other than Citrus
Pair with a Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Port, or Sauternes

Cheeses

Camembert, Brie, and other soft cheese that is not over ripe pair well with just about any red wine such as Red Burgundy, Zinfandel, and Cabernet

Dutch Cheeses such as Gouda pair well with the above mentioned wines as well.

Milder Cheeses fair better with a fruiter red wine such as Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, or Beaujolais

Most Blue Cheeses have such intense flavours that a sweet wine is needed just to balance the flavours. A Late Harvest or Ice Gewurztraminer, Sauternes, or Johannesburg Riesling should do the trick. Milder blue cheese such as Gorgonzola pair well with a fruity red wine.

Goat Cheeses in general pair well with a dry white wine. Stronger goat cheese is paired better with a sweeter white wine, similar to the wines paired with blue cheese.

As a rule, red wines go well with mild to sharp cheese. Pungent and intensely flavoured cheese do well with a sweeter wine. A little history note: In European Countries it is customary to serve the best wine of the meal with cheese or a cheese course.

wine serving The taste of something different�strawberry wine

Strawberry wine is one of those delicious treats that can be used in so many different ways. Strawberry wine is not simply any old wine, it is like the nectar of the gods. You can drink strawberry wine on its own or you can use it in a smoothie, or you can even use strawberry wine the next time you make a party punch. The uses for strawberry wine are endless and they only add to the universal appeal of it.

The vast majority of people wine serving love the taste and the smell of fresh strawberries right? There is nothing that smells so much like summer than strawberries and that is just what strawberry wine smells like, fresh strawberries. Everyone can enjoy a wonderfully chilled glass of strawberry wine on a hot afternoon, or a cold one for that matter.

Strawberry wine is not made with grapes like many other wines, it is made only from strawberries. In most cases you will find that strawberry wine is made from whole strawberries.
