Fish for dinner, but what to drink?

Are you tired of pairing your fish with the same old white wine? Well, it’s time to shake things up and explore the world of fish and wine pairings.

First things first, forget the stereotype that fish only goes with white wine.

To find the perfect pairing, you need to consider the flavors and textures of the fish. 

For delicate white fish like tilapia or halibut, a crisp and acidic Sauvignon Blanc or Grüner Veltliner will enhance the subtle flavors of the fish without overpowering them. 

But what about heartier fish like salmon or tuna? These fish would go with a medium-bodied white wine like Chardonnay or Viognier to complement their rich flavors. Look for wines with subtle oak notes or creamy textures to match the buttery texture of the fish.

Now, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to pair your sardines or anchovy pizza with wine, we’ve got just the thing for you. Try a chilled Gamay or Albarino, their crisp and bright flavors will match the boldness of the fish.

But wait, what about Rosé lovers?

Don’t worry, a dry Rosé with fruity notes of strawberry or raspberry will pair well with most grilled fish dishes. The wine’s acidity will cut through any richness in the fish and the fruit flavors will add a touch of sweetness to the dish. 

So there you have it, fish and wine pairing made easy. Remember, it’s all about balance. Take time to experiment with different wines with Winc and see which ones work best for your favorite fish recipes. Happy pairing!
