The most frequently asked question I get is “What is the perfect wine to pair with fill-in-the-blank?” I have to break the news to them that nothing is perfect, but with a little thought we can come pretty close. I’ve created two charts below to give you a guide when pairing herbal dishes with wines. Generally speaking pair white wines with lighter proteins, like chicken and fish as well as with salads. Pair red wines with heaver dishes. Rosés pair nicely with creamy dishes.
This weeks Sunday Supper theme is Fresh Garden Herbs and Vegetables. The movement created by Isabel at ‘The Family Foodie’ has captured national attention and aims to bring back Sunday supper around the family table. Read more about it here. This week’s dishes and wine pairings are listed here, if you want to chat with the chefs, join us Sunday from 3pm (eastern) thru dinner time on Twitter and Pinterest.

I don’t have much experience pairing wine and foods other than red wine with foods XYZ and white wine with foods ABC. LOL This is very helpful!
Sofie, the only way to get more experience is to keep at it!! Keep sipping!

Love how you focused on pairing up our dishes! I know very little about wine except that I like to drink it LOL Thanks for sharing and making us a cool chart 🙂
Carla, The more you drink wine, the more you learn! If you can’t remember all the great wines you drink, start taking pictures of the bottles. “Bottle Shots” are a GRAPE way to remember the wines we love!
Come back here for more wine tips!
