Sparkling champagne, crisp champagne, and bubbly champagne. Oh, and did we say champagne? Okay, we may be a little biased in our love for the bubbly, but we sought out what the pros had to say about wine pairings for all the wine connoisseurs.
Food + Wine gave us the tools and tips to find which wine will be paired best during your full-service seated dinner. Here's some of the more popular blends we found for you:
Champagne. First and foremost, of course. This is the perfect match for your salty dishes, adding just the right amount of sweetness.
Pinot Noir. Great for earthy dishes that include food like mushrooms and truffles.
Chardonnay. Serving fish for dinner? This wine is a must. Rich foods and savory sauces pair great with this silky white wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon. For the delicious cut of prime rib, Cabernet pairs wonderfully with juicy red meats.
Sauvignon Blanc. Tart foods, such as a citrus sauces, won't be too overwhelming with this tasty white wine.
Rose. Dry rose pairs nicely with rich, cheesy dishes
Moscato. This wine helps to emphasize the fruit in dessert, rather than the sugar.
As a wine lover, you know that the list could go on and on. Who's ready for a menu tasting? We certainly are!
