- Balance Acidity – The wine should have more acidity than the salads or foods you are pairing. The acidity balances the bitterness of leafy greens for example. Try a Viognier.
- Consider Richness – The richness of seared Ahi tuna pairs beautifully with the lush fruit, spice, & a kiss of oak in wines like Grenache or Pinot Noir.
- Spice & Smoke – Fire up that grill or smoker but take that cooking method into consideration when choosing the wine. Grilled rack of lamb with herbs sings in perfect harmony with Syrah’s black & blue fruit characteristics.
- Rosé & Fresh Fruit – Wines with floral notes tend to enhance fresh fruit. LDV’s new 2020 Rosé of Grenache has intense fruit flavors that will play off the sweetness of strawberry shortcake & slice through the whipped cream.
