How to Pair Food with Wine
🎂 If your food is sweet, make sure your wine is sweeter. Serving a dessert wine like Port or Sauternes with your dessert will complement and enhance the dish.
🧂 If your food is salty, don’t be afraid to try bolder, more tannic red wines, like Bordeaux or a Cabernet Sauvignon.
🍋 High acid food and high acid wine go hand-in-hand, so try something like Alsatian Riesling paired with a goat cheese salad to make the flavors pop
🥩 If your food is fatty or high in oils, pair with wines that have enough acid to cut through the fat. This can be high acid reds (like a Nebbiolo) or bright whites (like Chablis)
🌶 If your food is spicy, try pairing it with lower alcohol wines that have a touch of sweetness, like German Riesling or this off-dry sparkling rosé.
