Try These 3 Wine and Comfort Food Pairings

Mon, Feb 06, 23

Pairing the perfect wine with your favorite comfort food can be a tricky task. But don't worry; we're here to help! Here are three wine and comfort food pairings that should please everyone in your family. Plus, you don't even need to leave the house thanks to wine online shopping.

Deciding Which Wine and Comfort Pairing You Really Want

A few factors will influence your decision when pairing wine and comfort food. The first is the type of wine you choose. If you're going for a light and airy pairing, go for a white wine. If you're looking for a more robust pairing, go for red wine. Here are some ideas for comfort food and wine pairings and why they go great together.

Pasta and Cheese with Chardonnay

The first thing to note about this pairing is that chardonnay is a very versatile wine. It can be enjoyed with a variety of foods, from salads and sandwiches to pasta with a cheesy cream sauce. If you're enjoying a more delicate style of pasta with seafood as the star of the show and your sauce is light, try a unoaked Charonnday that won't overpower the subtle flavors of your main dish. On the other hand, if you're indulging in a rich creamy sauce with your pasta, try a bolder style of Charonnday that has seen some oak and/or malo during fermentation. This oaky and buttery style of Chardonnay will match the richness in your dish!

Chicken and Waffles with Dry Prosecco

This pairing is perfect for anyone who loves breakfast food. Chicken and waffles are a classic pairing that is always a hit. Dry prosecco is a light and refreshing wine that goes great with this meal. It's also good for parties, as it can be enjoyed by all.

Bread Pudding with Late Harvest Riesling

Bread pudding is a classic comfort food that is always a hit. Late-harvest Riesling is a wine that is made from grapes that have been harvested after what is normally considered "the best" part of the grape harvest. This makes the wine high in acidity and fruity flavors, which pairs perfectly with bread pudding.
