Easy Wine Pairings

If you’ve ever been to a very upscale restaurant, you might have noticed that the waiter or the menu may have suggested a wine to go with each dish. That is because certain aspects of wine go with different dishes because they complement each other based on the taste and ingredients. If you want to try your hand at wine pairings, use this guide to start.

Pinot Grigio

This white wine is perfect to pair with delicate fishes like tilapia because it has a light, fruity, but not sweet taste. You can also pair it will other fishes, or even a chicken entree that is on the lighter side, especially in a lemon sauce.

Cabernet Sauvignon

This hearty, dry red wine is not sweet, and pairs really well with any type of red meat. Whether that’s steak, a beef stew, or even a luxurious hamburger, cabernet sauvignon is the match you’re looking for.


Most people think champagne should only be drunk at celebrations and New Year’s, but why deprive yourself of the pleasure of this delicious fizzy wine! If you do decide to start drinking it on just regular days of the year, try it with any type of seafood, or dishes that are on the saltier side like fried or cured foods.
