Friday Food & Wine Pairings: Winter Adventures

January 24th, 2014

We’re going to keep going with the theme of adventurous drinking, this time we’re combining it with … winter. [level-members]

And someone’s already done the heavy lifting for us. Gregory Dal Paz at Snooth recently posted a piece about two wines, that while hardly unknown, aren’t usually included in the roundup of usual suspects: Carmenere and Petite Sirah.

Click through for the specific bottles he’s recommending. He’s included pairing suggestions for each, including burgers and steaks, to which we’ll add stews, particularly less spicy end of the Indian food spectrum. Those dishes should pick up the spices many of these wines show.
