What food goes with red wine? Recommendations needed!
I’m cooking dinner and need some tasty recommendations! What food goes with red wine?
While I drink both red and white, I prefer red and drink more of it, especially during dinner.heyjudeMemberTopics: 1
Okay, I see… If you have dishes like roast lamb or beef which are hearty dishes, then something like Cabernet Sauvignon is a good match. This will also go nicely with coq au vin. Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be medium or full-bodied and pairs nicely with those dishes.
For dark, leafy green veggie dishes, a medium-bodied red goes nicely. In fact, even a light red wine can go with it. If you serve a mixed green salad, a sweet, light red wine will be perfect. For a dish that has a more earthy depth to it, a Pinot Noir will do the trick.bestlifeMemberTopics: 2
If you ever go to a barbecue and had to bring some wine, bring a bottle of Gamay. It will go well with griddled veggies. If spicy sausages and barbecued sardines are on the menu, it will go down really nicely too. You can leave it in the fridge for about an hour, so it is lightly chilled.
These all sound delicious so far! Where do you guys get your wine? Do you just buy it from a store, or is there some designated place that I don’t know about?bestlifeMemberTopics: 2

For hearty and rustic dishes, Grenache goes down beautifully. These are some of the most delicious wines. They are expensive also, but understandably so.
It has a bit of a cinnamon flavour. The aroma is a bit of a mix of ruby-red grapefruit and orange rind. If you make casoulet, I suggest this particular wine.smartypantsMemberTopics: 0
Whenever I have to choose a dinner wine, more often than not, I will go with a Malbec. It has softer tannins than many other reds.
A lean cut of flank, skirt steak or sirloin works well with Malbec. It also goes well with pork, lamb and chicken. A flank steak is nice and juicy and is perfect with a glass of Malbec. But perhaps my favourite pairing is Malbec and prime rib. It just works so well. You have to try it to see what I mean.
The flavours of slow-cooked pulled pork along with the barbecue sauce paired with a rich Malbec is just to die for! Try it. Oh, and try it with grilled steak too.
