Risotto with Mushrooms is a creamy Italian dish. The ingredients include rice, mushroom, stock, butter and cheese.

The risotto fills your mouth with fat and earthy flavors.

The Piemonte region in Northern Italy is known for its quality rice production and red wines that have matched Mushroom Risotto for centuries.

Aged white wines develop aromas of mushroom and earth, a perfect pairing for similar flavors. If you go for a white wine we suggest an oaked Chardonnay.

If you choose bubbles, try a Blanc de Noir (white sparkling made with Pinot Noir grapes) or a Franciacorta.

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.
