2013 Wine Resolutions – #9 – Crush Culinary Customs

by Monica Bennion on January 9, 2013

We all know the basic rule of food and wine pairing; “Red wines with red meat and white wines with fish.”  While there is something to be said for this simple rule, the food and wine pairing experience can reach far beyond this.  With chicken, pork, turkey, seafood and vegetables on the plate, all rules go out the window and the pairing options are endless.  For instance, we love Open Face Poached Sea Bass Sandwiches with our Amador County Barbera.  Another fun pairing is Pork Chops with Sticky Rice and Thai Green-Chile Sauce served alongside our Mendocino Riesling.  The key is to experiment, break tradition, and find what works for you.  If you have a favorite “unconventional” pairing, we’d love to hear it!
