Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Food and Wine Pairings

Many people don't mind mixing in a vegetarian meal at least occasionally (hopefully more often than not), but there is still confusion about vegetarian food and wine. And why not? Even omnivores can't agree on wine pairings. :)

Meatless Monday: Vegetarian Food and Wine Pairings

White with fish, red with meat is a basic rule of thumb. People will argue on whether it always holds true, but for the most part, for most people, it works.

Certain wines, medium bodied, minimal or no oak, higher acidity,dry and crisp structure often are good with veggies. Examples of this type of wine are dry rosés (one of our favorites), Rieslings, Pinot Blancs and Grigios, reds like Riojas from Spain.

But don't take our word for it, go ahead and grab your favorite buttery Chardonnay or oaky Cabernet. Ultimately, of course, personal taste will out, so grab a couple of bottles, roast or grill some veggies, and start mixing and matching -- you might be surprised what you like.
