Food and Wine Pairing Charts
While some wine enthusiasts believe one should pair food with a wine they like, others would like a more defined answer. There are some who would not want to offend, a guest with providing the “wrong” wine for a food. However, the question is, “Is there really a wrong wine when it comes to pairing?”
To guide those who are looking for a definitive answer, Wine Trail Traveler is providing the following Food and Wine charts for convenience. Keep in mind these charts are only suggestions.
Points to consider:
No matter what wine you select, it should be good quality.
Store your wine correctly. Serve your wine at the correct temperature.
If you do not like a wine, do not serve it.
If you are not sure if your guests like red or white wine, have a bottle of each available. Keep in mind that some wine drinkers cannot tolerate red wine.
Remember the same varietal grape will provide a different type of wine depending on the terroir and the winemaker’s style.
Some wines are made from the same variety of grape. There may be differences in the winemaker's style. In order to keep the charts small we used the following terms.
|Variety mentioned in charts||Variety also know as|
|Chardonnay||Cablis, White Burgundy|
|Pinot Gris||Pinot Grigio|
If you discover a wine that pairs well with a food, be sure to email (link on the sidebar) and we will add it to our chart. On the other hand, if you are looking for a particular pairing that is not on the list, let us know and we will search for an answer for you.
