What can be better than your favorite wine in combination with “comfortable” food? By “comfortable” we mean dishes that have nostalgic or sentimental value. In addition, such food may be characterized by high caloric content and / or ease of preparation. And wine in combination with your favorite dishes – the perfect addition to dinner. Next we will tell you which wine to eat chicken pies, pasta with cheese, roast and sandwiches with fried cheese.
Chicken pie from “Pino-game”
Hearty and familiar to all pies with chicken deserve a rich texture of white wine. “Pinot Gris” (in Italy it is also called “Pinot Grigio” – yes, it’s the same grape variety) – white full-bodied wine with a creamy, lush and rounded texture and aromas of ripe pear. Most Pinot Gris can be made without the use of new oak barrels (new oak can give an oily or toasted taste that not everyone will like), so it has a clean, crispy profile. If you like full-bodied white wine and you want to try something other than Chardonnay, give Pino a chance!
Alsace, France, is one of the best regions to host Pinot Gris. You can also turn to the Austrian options.
Pasta with cheese with sparkling wine
A simple and quick dish that is perfect for the evening. Pasta with cheese has everything: they are hot, hearty and creamy. Sure, you not only added cheese to pasta, but also experimented with meat, sauces or baked them in the oven. But our favorite addition to this dish is a glass of sparkling wine. The richness of the cheese sauce is perfectly balanced by the contrast of cheerful, appetizing sparkling wine – the best way to diversify dinner on a weekday is simply not found!
You can choose an option with a tart apple flavor and a hint of vanilla. We recommend trying wine from the Loire Valley in France. Another alternative is “Coffee” – a Spanish sparkling wine with floral aromas and refreshing citrus flavor. Of course, we can’t help but mention Prosecco. It is a fresh and lively addition to this favorite pasta dish.
Roast with Cabernet Sauvignon
Not only are the recipes baked incredibly varied and easy to prepare, they are also filling. With fatty pieces of red meat, red wine “Cabernet Sauvignon” with a pleasant tan will give you the opportunity to experience the rich taste of the dish. You can’t find a better “partner” for hot. In different versions of “Cabernet Sauvignon” you can find rich shades of dark berries, appetizing aromas of blueberries and plums, as well as rich notes of chocolate and spices, so you will probably be able to choose the perfect combination.
Fried Vermentino cheese sandwich
Try a combination of fried sandwich with cheese, tomato soup and universal wine “Vermentino”. This medium-bodied Italian white wine with good acidity is refreshing. Vermentino is from Tuscany and Sardinia. It has a mild golden apple flavor and a sunny but fresh aftertaste. You can feel the notes of mint and evergreen plants hovering over the juicy notes of lemon and peach, some of which combine notes of fruit with spicy minerality.
