The luxurious and fat foie gras calls for a good quality wine. White or Red or Champagne.

If the Foie Gras is spicy, sparkling wines pair very well.

If the Foie Gras is savory rich and hot, a medium red can be a good choice.

If the Foie Gras is served with fruit, use a sweet wine that does not fight the acidity in the fruit.

Go Local
