Match wine with food
Opinion wavers on clear rights and wrongs when it comes to food and wine matching, but certain flavours bring out the best in each other. Use our guide as a rule of thumb, but most of all, enjoy the wine you drink.
- Sort by wine/grape
- Sort by food type
A to Z food list
Beef - roast or stew
Go for a medium or full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon.
Chicken - roast or casserole
Curry - light, fresh
Curries can be hard to match, depending on their spices and flavours. A chicken korma or Thai green curry goes well with a young 'New World' Riesling.
Curry - spicy
A dry Gewürztraminer is your best bet with spicier curries or baltis.
Fruit - tarts and puddings
Wines made from the Barbera grape go really well with tomato-based dishes, in fact, many dishes from the Northern Italian regions.
