Use these charts as a guide for wine & food pairing ideas.
Do you love entertaining in your home? A nice glass of wine can make any meal a special occasion. Most of us are inviting friends and family into our homes for dinner parties on a regular basis. It is fairly easy to create an appealing menu for your family and friends, and we all know it doesn’t always have to be a feast that consists of roast beef, turkey or baked ham.
Figuring out which wine to serve at your dinner parties is not always so easy. Take a look at our easy mushroom ravioli recipe for dinner! Which wine would you serve with this meal? I usually stick with a nice glass of Chardonnay or Riesling.
Maybe it’s time to brush up on our wine pairing skills with this home bar guide.

We also found a great wine & food pairing guide for our more visual readers.
Use either one of these charts as a guide for wine & food pairing ideas, or get a full color poster you can proudly display and refer to in your own home. Explore the framework of modern wine service and tasting techniques on an illuminating poster print. This guide relates common themes in a simple modern design such as wine calories, alcohol level, wine color, aroma and decoding a wine label. This poster works well framed in a position where you can look at it closely; perhaps in your kitchen, office or next to your growing wine collection. Sorry, the poster is no longer available.
