Pair Up - November 2019

Red wines don’t often go well with classic finger foods found at holiday parties. This may seem surprising, but the basis of this statement is rooted in the fact that red wine is generally high in tannins and low in acids. The low acidity means that you can’t have anything too acidic with it. And, the high tannins mean that it can’t be anything cold, spicy, or vegetal. The good news is that there are some great options and general guidelines you can use to make your party foods work for the red-wine drinkers in the crowd.

Red Wine Party

  • Manchego with Quince Paste and Rioja
  • Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms and Syrah

My goal is to create pairings that enhance the flavor of each component. I want to empower you to make your own beverage selections by providing you with the style and flavor profile leaving the producer and price up to you and your trusted retailer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me via email.

La Sommelierre is on Twitter

Each month I post a link to the monthly articles on Twitter. Historically, I have posted wine-related information. Most often, I posted food and wine pairings, but sometimes just interesting facts on wines, wine making or the grapes themselves. Check them out and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.

La Sommelierre is here to expand your knowledge of wine... one taste at a time. Look around the website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
