Pairing Food & Wine


Classic Pairings

Champagne / Caviar

Caviar

The saltiness of Caviar pairs perfect with the crisp flavors of a dry Champagne.

Chablis / Oysters

Oysters

Oysters are amazing decadent with their taste of ocean and heavenly creaminess. The unoaked flinty mineral nature of Chablis is a perfect match.

Chardonnay / Lobster

Lobster

Chardonnay, with its delicious notes, is an excellent pair to lobster.
Especially a Chardonnay with more minerals and less oak.

Pinot Grigio / Grilled Seabass

Seabass

Pinot Grigio pairs well with almost any kind of seafood.
Grilled white fish loves dry citrus and minerality.

Pinot Noir / Grilled Salmon

Grilled Salmon

Pinot Noir picks up the richness of the salmon and the taste of caramelized skin.

Chianti / Red Pizza

Pizza

The fresh acidity of Chianti is a perfect pair to any tomato based pizza.

Burgundy / Beef Burgundy

Beef Burgundy

Beef Burgundy is a rich dish that needs an equally rich red wine with high acidity. Since the dish is from Burgundy, a red Burgundy (Pinor Noir) is the natural choice.

Gewürztraminer / Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry

A fruity Gewürztraminer pairs very well with sweet & spicy food.
The slight sweetness of the wine is also needed to reduce the heat of the spices.

Sauvignon Blanc & Lemon Chicken

Grilled Chicken

Lemon Chicken pairs best with a fresh and fruity wine with good acidity.

Moscato d'Asti & Fruit Cake

Fruit Cake

Fruit cakes pair best with a fruity wine with both sweetness and acidity.
