Here, the cardinal rules for matching up wines and food, from dry rosé and cheesy dishes to malbec and sweet-spicy barbecue sauces.


Chardonnay: For fatty fish or fish in a rich sauce


Silky whites—for instance, Chardonnays from California, Chile or Australia—

are delicious with fish like salmon or any kind of seafood in a lush sauce.



Pinot Noir: Is great for dishes with earthy flavors



Recipes made with ingredients like mushrooms and truffles taste great with reds like

 Pinot Noir and Dolcetto, 

which are light-bodied but full of savory depth.

Cabernet Sauvignon: Is fabulous with juicy red meat

California Cabernet, Bordeaux and Bordeaux-style blends are terrific with steaks or chops—like lamb chops with frizzled herbs. The firm tannins in these wines refresh the palate after each bite of meat.
