Weekend Wine Time. July 15, 2011


Red or White?  Good Rule of Thumb.....

Red wine with red meat.
White wine with white meat.
This may be one of the most widely recognized rules of thumb in wine-and-food matching.

If fish or chicken is your grilling choice this weekend, then try this:

Sauvignon Blanc - Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine best known for its herbal flavors. Sauvignon Blanc is  is a popular choice for fish and shellfish dishes.  Wine experts have used the phrase "crisp, elegant, and fresh" as a favorable description of Sauvignon Blanc. When slightly chilled, pairs well with fish, cheese, chicken, and Sushi.  Remember to chill before serving.

If red meat is your grilling choice this weekend, give this a try:

Red Table Wine - If you're not a big "red wine" person, try "Red Table Wine".  Most liquor stores have a brand of basic "Red Table Wine".  Table wine is a blend of different types of red grapes, and leans a bit to the sweeter side, instead of dryer side.  This type of wine is a good start for those who have not normally been a red wine drinker.  The label will actually say Red Table Wine.
