Pairing Food & Wine For Valentines Day

Some wines and foods are a match made in heaven whilst others just never get on.  But do you know which ones?

If you are going to the trouble of preparing a special meal for the object of your affections, why not up the wow factor by choosing a great wine to accompany the food?

The wine buffs at independent wine specialists Roberson Wine have prepared this handy infographic which gives great suggestions to help you impress your Valentine.

At a push, most of us know that white wines go well with fish and chicken, whilst heavier reds are best paired with beef, game and more substantial dishes.

But what about curries, or dessert, or chocolate (yes really)!

The Husband and I tend to stick to red wine and our favourites include the Malbec and Pinot Noir grape varieties, as well as a full bodied Rioja.

You can find more information on Roberson's handy blog - www.robersonwine.com/blog/, including their take on the new drinking guidelines.

My own view?  Drink responsibly with an eye on your health but enjoy the best quality wine you can.
