Pair Your Wines
Selecting the right wine with your meals can be confusing if you do not know much about wines. My Family’s Seasonings in Lakeland, Florida, has provided a guide to wine pairing in an effort to make the selection process a little easier. With over 20 varieties of wine, including cabernet sauvignon and more, we’ve provide the most popular five wines. After pairing your wine with your meal, read on for proper table etiquette.
Follow our guide to determine what wine is best with the meal you are preparing. Here are the following wines.
- Zinfandel – Called the American grape wine because its possibilities were first realized in Sonoma. Zinfandel ages into strong “big” wines.
- Cabernet Sauvignon – The defining grape of Bordeaux, “Cab” has now been planted all over the globe and results in a medium-to-full-bodied wine with flavors of blackberry and green peppercorn.
- Merlot – Less astringent than Cabernet, Merlot has a softer mouth-feel that makes it nearly universally popular.
- Rose – Made from red grapes, Rose is best when made in the dry European style, when it retains the character of red wine.
- Chardonnay – Still the most popular white grape, Chardonnay can taste like vanilla and butterscotch or green apples and tropical fruit, depending on where it’s grown and how it’s aged.
