Fine dining and delicious wines go hand in hand, but it’s extremely important to make the right pick. If you’re thinking of ordering smoked salmon during your fancy dinner, here’s a couple of beverages that will go great with an assertive flavor and oily texture of this pescatarian dish.
It’s not a coincidence that smoked salmon is commonly associated with champagne. You can’t go wrong by ordering them together but stick to the classics because white campaigns provide the best match for smoked salmon thanks to their dry finish and sparkly texture.
