Filipino Chicken Curry Stew (Ginataang Manok) is made with coconut milk, ginger, garlic and vegetables.

The best wine match is Sauvignon Blanc, especially a grassy and citrusy one from New Zealand!

With its acidity and broad aromatic spectrum, it is a pair made in heaven for curry dishes rich in vegetables and spices.

If the dish is very creamy, go for a creamy (malolactic) Chardonnay.

If the dish is spicy, go for something off-dry: Riesling Spätlese, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer.

In the mood for red? go for something light and fruity.

Go Local

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.
