Wine is a natural partner to food and the flavours in wine have traditionally been used to complement food flavours. Food and wine matching needn’t be complicated and when you get it right, the results are pure pleasure.
Generally fish is best paired with white wine due to its delicate flavour, but this wine depends on the type of fish and the way that it is cooked.
Grilled white fish need crisp, zesty wines like the Stowells Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. Meatier fish like salmon, or fish dishes with creamy sauces need a richer wine like the Stowells Italian Merlot Rosé, Stowells Australian Colombard Chardonnay or Stowells Italian Chardonnay Pinot Grigio.
Wine regions close to the sea normally produce the best wines for seafood. A light and delicate white with fresh and zesty flavours will enhance all your seafood dishes.
Try the Stowells whites such as:
- Stowells French Colombard Sauvignon
- Stowells Italian Merlot Rosé
- Stowells Italian Pinot Grigio
- Stowells Chilean Sauvignon Blanc
Pasta & Pizza
The Italians are passionate about food and wine matching, and many of their dishes have a very specific match.
Match tomato based pasta sauces and plain pizzas with dry whites such as the Stowells Italian Pinot Grigio.
Creamy, rich dishes such as spaghetti carbonara are delicious with crisp wines like Stowells USA Chardonnay.
Wine and cheese make classic partners, but the type of cheese very much affects the choice of wine.
Strong, hard cheeses like cheddar need a rich red with bags of fruit like the Stowells Chilean Cabernet Merlot.
White-rind cheeses like Brie and goat’s cheese are great with Stowells Chilean Sauvignon Blanc.
