Tips for choosing the best wine for your meal
Read Henry's quick and easy guides to matching wine with classic dishes:
What to eat with red wine
Ermita de San Lorenzo Gran Reserva, Campo de Borja 2011
Serve with... roasted vegetable lasagne
Mainly Grenache with a little Cabernet Sauvignon, this Spanish red is mellow and spicy but most importantly, it’s chock full of sweet fruit, just the thing with the melty sweetness of roasted vegetables.
Vinha do Fava Touriga Nacional, Península de Setúbal, 2017
Serve with... Greek roast lamb
The Portuguese variety Touriga Nacional with its wild rosemary scent is custom built for roast lamb cooked with herbs and those ripe tannins would relish meat served a little on the pink side.
Château Haut Pourjac, Bordeaux 2016
Serve with... beef bourguignon
It is slightly heretical having Bordeaux with Boeuf Bourguignon but this example made mainly from Merlot with a little Cabernet Sauvignon is so soft and fruity that there’s something almost a bit Burgundian about it.
What to eat with white wine
Casa de Vila Verde, Vinho Verde 2017
Serve with... smoky hake with beans
Hake, especially cooked with chorizo, is an Iberian speciality, so go for something either Portuguese or Spanish. This delightfully fresh Vinho Verde from Northern Portugal fits the bill perfectly.
Alambrado Gran Seleccion Chardonnay, Mendoza 2017
Serve with... quiche Lorraine
All that cheese, cream, eggs and bacon makes this a very rich dish so you don’t want your wine to be too heavy. This Argentine Chardonnay is ideal with its fresh citrus flavours and the lick of oak at the end chimes perfectly with the creaminess of the quiche.
Flor de San Martin Garnacha Blanca, Navarra 2017
Serve with... couscous salad
Grenache Blanc is big in southern France but it’s originally a Spanish variety, Garnacha Blanca. It has a distinctly herbal quality that compliments the mint, lemon and salty cheese in this North-African inspired salad.
