Contrary to popular belief, there are no hard and fast rules for matching food with wine. The best way to learn is try any wine with any recipe. Look for how the food complements the wine or doesn't complement. If the food overpowers the wine, then obviously that isn't the right match.
The old rule of red wine with meat, white wine with fish also can be thrown out the window. Although it can be a good starting point, we have often had salmon with a lighter red like Pinot Noir or even an older Cabernet Sauvignon.
Conversely, there are some bigger styled white wines that have matched well with meat. Please try the Food & Wine Pairing Advisor on our website. It will recommend up to three wine varietals for almost 200 different dishes and flavors.
The message here is go with what you feel is right. Just enjoy the type of wine you drink and the foods you eat, don't let anyone tell you what's right and what's wrong. We reiterate our original thought: Experiment!
