Wine and Food Matching Guidelines

Wine & food pairing
  1. Consider the weight of the wine with the weight of the food.
  • Rich and heavyweight foods such as red meat dishes need full-bodied wines
  • Lightweight foods such as poultry and fish need light-bodied wines
  1. Consider how the food is prepared and its flavor intensity.
  • Wines and foods with similar flavor characteristics make good combinations
  • Match the wine to the sauce if the sauce is the dominant flavor of the dish
  1. Wines generally go well with the foods from the same region.
  2. High acid wines complement fatty foods.
  3. Salty foods can be enhanced and balanced by sweeter wines.
  4. The more texture the food has, the more tannin you need in the wine.
  5. The wine served should be at least or sweeter than the food that is served.
