Wine Pairing Chart

Pin It

We drink a lot of wine at home with our meals, but kind of randomly – I choose wines at the store by the labels and the prices that I like, and have a few old faithful wines that I always keep on hand. But when it comes to pairing wines with foods, I was clueless. And when it comes to entertaining, it seems like we should at least know the basics when offering our guests a glass of wine to pair with their dinner so I did a little research.  I came across this fantastic Wine Pairing Infographic Chart from Wine Folly, within their post about the 5 Tips to Perfect Food and Wine Pairings.
