Food & Drink Pairings

 

Looking for a fabulous wine to pair with your antipasto? The main concept behind pairings is that certain elements (such as texture and flavour) in both food and drink interact with each other.

This interaction if paired well, will bring together flavours in solid form and flavours in liquid form to create a third, delicious set of flavours, bringing about something you wouldn’t have tasted if you hadn’t tried them together.  

Check out these delicious wine, beer and spirit matches as pictured and detailed below:
