Cedar Plank Salmon & Wine Pairing

Bold and creamy white wines like Chardonnay and Viognier complement the fattiness of a cedar-planked salmon.  For red wines, a light and fruity Pinot Noir has the perfect structure to jive with the smoky salmon flavours.  A crisp and fruity Rosé or a creamy sparkling wine round up our top five picks for this [...]

Swordfish & Food Pairings

Swordfish grows up to around 10 feet long, which makes for a rather meaty fish.  Often sold in steaks, Swordfish does not have a fishy taste or strong flavour like salmon, tuna or mackerel has.  Instead, Swordfish has a slightly sweet taste, with a lean protein-fueled texture.  Full-bodied white wines like Chardonnay and Grenache [...]

Bluefish & Wine Pairing

Best Wine with Bluefish Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Gewurztraminer Pinot Noir Sangiovese Chardonnay and Bluefish Pairings Bluefish is a full-flavoured, fatty and meaty fish, and often enjoyed like a steak, much like tuna or salmon is.  Because of it's a fuller flavoured fish, a full bodied Chardonnay that is oaky and buttery will work well [...]

Sole & Wine Pairings

Sole is a fish that is like no other, in that it doesn't taste very 'fishy' at all. This fish also has the versatility to combine with just about anything, such as herbs, sauces, and vegetables without losing its sweet and delicate identity.  Sole is not a fish you would want to pair up [...]

Anchovies & Wine Pairing

Anchovies and dishes with Anchovies in them are extremely salty.  Therefore you want to pair them up with chilled white wines that are high in acidity, and lightly oaked. A Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand would work beautifully, as it is pungent on the nose like anchovies are, but the flavours are tangy and [...]

Halibut & Wine Pairing

Halibut is a medium and flaky fish. By medium, we mean its texture is a little thicker and firmer than a flaky fish than sole, haddock or flounder. But it's not rich and oily like salmon, swordfish, or tuna. As it's not a rich and meaty fish, you're generally going to stick to white [...]

Pairing Wine With Tuna

Tuna is a versatile fish; it can be served as a steak, eaten as a sandwich, or added to a casserole.  For people who don't like the fishiness of fish, Tuna offers a great alternative as it has all the health benefits of eating fish (Tuna is high in omega 3, high in protein, [...]

Salmon & Wine Pairings

almon is a rich and oily fish, that won't exactly pair with any wine you toss at it. Full of flavour, Salmon isn't strong enough to hold up to a hefty red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon, or a Merlot. Furthermore, tannin in these powerful reds tends to make the Salmon taste metallic and [...]

Salmon Burgers & Wine Pairing

For wine pairing with Salmon Burgers, our top recommendations are a grassy Sauvignon Blanc, which is a white wine that has herbal notes that will complement any herbs incorporated in the patty (such as dill, basil and parsley). For red wines, there is no greater pairing than an Oregon Pinot Noir, which features a [...]

Tuna Casserole & Wine Pairing

Tuna Casserole is a tricky dish to pair with, as canned Tuna tends to taste metallic when paired with tannic red wines. The creaminess of the casserole also demands an acidic wine to cut through the rich flavours. Thus, we'd suggest light and fruity reds like a Beaujolais, Côtes du Rhône, or Pinot Noir. [...]
