Wine Pairing

Textures
Like food, wine has texture. A very full wine, for example, has a mouth-filling texture and bold flavors that get your attention. Such a wine would overpower a delicately flavored dish and, as a result, detract from the overall impression of the meal. Harmony is what you are seeking. Generally, the fuller in flavor the food, the more full-bodied the wine, delicate food requires lighter-bodied wine. The following is a list of suggestions based on the texture of wines and the food they can match.

White Wine Food Pairings
(light-bodied) Chablis, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Riesling
Sole, Flounder, Clams, Oysters, Angel Hair Pasta with Tomato Basil Sauce

(medium-bodied) Pouilly-Fume, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
Snapper, Bass, Shrimp, Scallops, Veal (Paillard), Chicken, Turkey, Pork,
Crab – Steamed & Broiled

(full-bodied) Chardonnay
Salmon, Tuna, Swordfish, Lobster, Duck, Roast Chicken, Turkey, Pork,
Highly-Seasoned Seafood, Seafood Newburg, Crab – Fried & Crabcakes

Red Wine Food Pairings
(light-bodied) Chianti, Pinot Noir, Burgundy
Salmon, Tuna, Swordfish, Duck, Roast Chicken, Turkey

(medium-bodied) Beaujolais, Merlot, Zinfandel
Game birds, Veal, Pork

(full-bodied) Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel
Lamb, Beef, Lasagna, Tomato or highly-seasoned sauces, Rich or heavy sauces (Bernaise), Smoked, marinated or BBQ meats
