Vino, wine, vin, wine, everyone likes a glass of it. And what is even better than a good glass of wine? A good glass of wine and an accompanying meat dish! But which wine goes with which dish? We tell you everything about food pairing. Meat is not only delicious with red wine, but certainly also with a soft rosé or fresh white wine. Read on and discover which wine goes with which dish!
A piece of meat
With beef meat can be red as well as a strong white wine. You just have to take into account that it is best to choose a wine with a spicy undertone to enhance the taste of the meat. We prefer wines from the Bordeaux region: Médoc, Bordeaux or Haut Médoc. You can of course also choose a Bordeaux blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Carménère for your food pairing. Meat like steak, prime rib or cutlet can easily be given a lot of extra taste with a delicious red wine.
Smokey meat, smokey wine?
Beer is often chosen for a barbecue. That is possible, but a nice glass of wine will taste just as good. When barbecuing, choose a wine with a soft and fruity undertone that matches all meat dishes and marinades. Take for example a soft rosé or a fresh red wine.
Beef stew, vol-au-vent, Ghent waterzooi, delicious Flemish stews that appear on every dining table. A rich, full-bodied red wine: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
Wild from wine
Wild as wild as wine? With game it depends on which side dishes you will serve. Do you choose earthy flavors such as chicory, Brussels sprouts or green beans? Then you go for a red Burgundy, a Pinot Noir or a Nebbiolo. Do you rather serve sweet and fruity side dishes? Then choose a Château-Neuf-du-Pape or a Lirac.
In a salad you will find lots of ingredients to stimulate your taste buds. A balanced wine that matches many different tastes is therefore essential. Therefore go for a Sauvignon Blanc. A spicy, lively white wine that will give salads more strength.
Hopefully you now know which wine you will serve with your meat tonight . Food pairing will ensure that your dishes taste even better. Tasty!
