An Introduction to Pairing Natural Wine and Food

Pairing wine is always a scary topic! Add onto it the idea of pairing NATURAL wines and it seems like the conversation should become even more complex. Never fear, we're here to help you navigate what to drink with your next meal and simplify it so you don't feel like you have to memorize regions or obscure wine classifications again!

Before we get into what wines go with what (we'll link below to each wine type from a special series we’re running) below is our cheat sheet to flavor profiles and meals that we use to classify our own wines and that you can use to more easily match your meal to your food! So for example, if we say something pairs well with shellfish, we're thinking things like Shrimp, Lobster, or Crab. Dairy would include soft cheese and hard cheese, etc.
