A Filet Mignon requires an elegant wine that can stand up to the meat.

A red wine is needed, but not so big that it overwhelms the meat.

The wine should have both tannins and a good backbone of acidity.

A round and soft Bordaux is an enjoyable wine. It pairs well with many dishes, especially Filet Mignon, Beef Tenderloin, and Pepper Steak. The same goes for a perfectly blended Super Tuscan.

The Cut

Filet Mignon (Tender Fillet / Delicate Fillet / Fine Fillet) is a cut of beef from the smaller end of the Tenderloin.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
