How to pair wine and meat?

Eating meat, in moderation, and drinking wine are both pleasures. And if we combine the two with each other it’s even better, don’t you think?

Red meat goes well with red wine, but other types of meat can be paired perfectly with other types of wines. A rosé, in addition to red, pairs very well with steak tartar. At the same time, a good entrecote of veal is perfect with strong and consistent red wines (Priorat, Penedès, and Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon grapes). The meat will taste better, but in addition, the pairing always depends on the sauce that is used to season the red meat.

Poultry and chicken are preferable with white and light red wines. Poultry meat is very versatile and therefore requires different wines. Wines produced on the Syrah grape go very well with duck, and once again it is worth mentioning the Cabernet Sauvignon, a grape that is strong on the palate, which surely compliments this type of meat. It is recommended pairing game (partridge or pheasant, ostrich) with young red wines.

Pork can be paired with any type of wine, whether white wines or rosé wines. The meat is more mellow and tender, and it does not need to be paired with wines that are too strong.

And the sausages? When we prepare meat on the grill or barbeque, often with some sausages on the side, we often choose red wines to accompany the meal. Similarly, we often choose the full-bodied red wine when preparing lamb as this meat is denser and more marked.

If we opt for baked or roasted meats, then, thanks to slow cooking and great preparation, it is better to drink more concentrated wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot. Again, the Cabernet Sauvignon pairs really well with dishes such as osso buco.

Unbeatable Parings with Rosé Wine

Autumn is just around the corner and nothing is more refreshing than a good rosé wine in your balcony feeling the sweet evening breeze. The most ambitious rosés can be paired with various foods that come along with the season. Here are some great advices.

Rosé wine + Meat

Although this wine fits perfectly with fish, pairing it with meat it’s also a very viable option. That is why it is recommended to mix it with pinky sausages and stronger red meats.

On the other hand, if you are having pork for dinner, you can go with a Monastrell rosé. Its fruity taste goes well with barbecued ribs and with any grilled meat.

Seafood

The purest rosé wine is the perfect choice for any seafood. Especially fruity wines because they intensify the powerful flavor of certain seafood.

Fish

In addition to white, rosé wine is one of the best options for all kinds of fish, preferably white. Just pick your favorite one and be delighted.

Cheese

Rosé wine and cheese are good allies. It is recommended to add goat cheese, camembert or brie to enjoy the special similarity of both flavors.

Pasta or salads

Fresh foods like salads, pastas, and even rice can be paired perfectly with rosé because they have a unique softness and freshness that make the dishes a lot tastier.

Fruits

Whereas you are having a delicious dessert or a fruit salad, rosé wine will go very well.

Tuscan rosé wines are better served with pasta and appetizers such as crostini, which is little pieces of toasted bread accompanied by tomato or pâté. Australian wines pair well enough with milder cheeses while Spanish rosés go well with fish and certain meats.

Rosé wine is best if it’s cold, but not too much, so we must take into account the temperature. Really it must be something hotter than white wine cooler than a red wine.
