Ask a Sommelier: Post your meal in the comments, and I'll reply with an appropriate wine

Pairing recommendations time!

Sometimes all you need is the right pairing for a certain wine or food to "click". Here's an opportunity for you FoodTribers to share your desired meal or snack (no limitations), and receive a recommendation to help flatter that food! Let me know in the comments if you have any particular guidelines you'd like me to stay within, but most importantly, keep an open mind! For example, you may not prefer white wine, but you're seared Ahi salad or fish tacos might just be the perfect food for you to find a new love for Sauvignon Blanc or Grüner Veltliner!

  • A starter of fresh oysters, nothing with them apart from sliced shallots in vinegar.

    Mains, bbq’d New York strip with a large honey roasted carrot, some tender stem broccoli and a small pile of mashed potato.

    Dessert, panna cotta with a tart berry compote.

    • For the first course, I’d have something low abv%, high acid, and from a cool climate. Champagne is the obvious choice, but I really like the traditional method “Sekt” coming out of Austria, and Cap Classique from South Africa. Dry...

    • Ok, I’m glad to know I’ve spent time blagging and suggesting good choices for the starters and main. Riesling is my go to with oysters. I do like a muscadet so I’ll try that pairing for sure.

      And steak wise I do usually go Rioja or Malbec, but...

  • A seafood entree (let's go with Oysters Kirkpatrick) followed by a white meat main (let's go with Duck confit).

    • Oooooh. For the Worcestershire and Bacon spiked Oysters, I’d have a light red, deeply colored rosé, or medium(+) bodied white with little oak influence. I’d say Oregon and Australian Chardonnay, Semillon, or Pinot Gris. Godello from...

  • I like Venison accompanied by Lodi valley's very own Ironstone Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel.

    It's a wee bit pricey but well worth it...as it comes from America, you don't have to worry so much about 'spoiling the flavour of a good vintage' (whatever that means) as to experiment is entirely what American wine is about anyways.

    I've said too much, I'm going to stop now otherwise I'll not be able to get a hold of any for myself!!

    • I love a bit of gamey meat with some bold Zinfandel. If you can ever find some, we have great, old vine Carignen here in California too. Or if you’re looking for more Zin-like wines, Barbera, Petite Sirah, and our examples of Rhône blends have...

    • Ooo...will have to take note and see if anywhere local to me (in the UK) has any 😊 👍

  • Is spam worthy of this? 😂 If not, I usually have beer with these next options, but a wine match could be a nice change... Buffalo hot wings and a beef burger with a sharp cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mustard and mayo.

    • I’m glad you asked. Wine has no prejudice against food!

      Spam is something that Syrah based wines from the Mediterranean side of France would love. California and Oregon Pinot Noir are a few other reds that would flatter the canned pork...

    • I love that there is literally a wine to go with everything 😁 if the wings were served with a blue cheese sauce, any change?

  • Morcilla and manchego cheese, Pulpo a la gallega, omelette with black truffles, and choux filled with hazelnut cream. I would love to know your wine or spirits recommendations. Thank you!

    • Fulana, for you, I’ll recommend specific wines. NY get’s all the good stuff. You should be able to find all of these. This’ll be fun...

      The cheese would work fantastically with reds like M.O.B Dão Portuguese Tinto, or Senda Verde Mencia....
