What to Pair With...

By: Treve Ring & Anthony Gismondi
Dishes, People & Occasions

One of the topics we're always getting asked about is food and wine pairings.

These queries come in especially fast and furious around holidays, like Easter. "What do you pair with ham / salmon / turkey / brunch... " I always say the same, simple thing: pair what you'd like to drink. However, for many folks, they'd like a little more guidance as to what that may be. So we thought that this year we'd save you all the questions, and provide a couple of wine suggestions, one local and one international, for dishes that might be passed around this long weekend's table. 

Remember, when you are really stuck for a wine pairing, pour champagne. Instant happiness all around.

Every week Treve Ring and Anthony Gismondi collaborate on our Top Ten list, released on Thursday morning, often with a timely theme. If you count carefully the list will more than likely exceed ten names but only because we believe if any wine is tied by a score that makes our list it should be included. We know many of you are wine savvy and can do your own sleuthing to locate our weekly picks but for those who asked: BCLS means it is sold in government retail stores; when we say private wine shops we mean it could be in any private wine shop or liquor retail store (LRS); winery direct means check with the winery online. If it’s not sold in BC we usually try and give you a suggested retail price. Prices change hourly in BC – the price we post is what we are given at publication.
