Food and Wine Pairing

Evans & Tate - dining


Finding the right meal to partner a wine can be a challenging and rewarding affair.

Like in all great partnerships, the best combinations of food and wine are those which allow the other to really shine.

When it comes to matching food and wine, the basic rule is that you should never pick a meal that will overpower the wine. The strength and types of flavours present in the meal need to complement the wine, without overshadowing it.

But part of what makes food and wine matching such an enjoyable and challenging affair is that it is more often an art than a science. While there are basic rules to learn and follow, the perfect match can often be a matter of personal taste or preference.

If you’re searching for ideas, we asked Wine Educator Michael Quirk which meals he would match with the Evans & Tate Range of Cellar Door wines. If you think something else would go better with these wines, we’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below!
