Anthony Pierpont “Wine Pairing”

As a general rule, the off-dry sweet quality of champagne and Spanish cava pairs perfectly with salty foods. While it is common knowledge that white wine pairs well with seafood, there is much more to the equation. Silky white wines such as Chardonnays pair well with fatty fish and seafood cooked in a rich sauce, while Pinot Grigio is far more suitable to light seafood dishes.

In terms of red wine, a Pinot Noir is perfect for earthy foods with mushrooms and truffles. Cabernet Sauvignon and Bordeaux are excellent choices for juicy red meats such as steaks and lamb chops, while bold wines such as Malbec and Shiraz can stand up to the flavor of sweet and spicy barbecue sauces.
