A guide to every food and wine pairing you’ll ever need to know


Here's our goal: to cook beautiful meals and drink the perfect wine to accompany it. But let's be honest; reality is very different.

When we hit the alcohol aisle we'll be tempted by a bottle we've never seen before, but in the end settle for tried and tested vino. In fact, last month we learned Brits drink Sauvignon Blanc more than any other bottle, meaning we're a group of wine settlers.

But a handy new infographic might just change that. This illustration of food and wine pairings by UK merchant Roberson lists exactly what ingredients work best with various grapes. 

Dishes containing fish go best with Italian white wine and a curry should be washed down with Germany's Riesling wine or anything from the Alsace region.

It even breaks down the wines that bring out the best flavours in white, milk and dark chocolate. 

We're bookmarking this chart and using it the next time we're in the booze aisle...
