Hello wine lovers! This week, my new friend Alexandria over at FTD Fresh reached out to tell me about a new herb and wine pairing guide she’s created and, I have to say, I absolutely love it. I’ve seen wine and food pairings in just about every combination before, but this one is so unique because it focuses on the herb your dish uses and goes from there. How perfect for those of you lucky ducks with herb gardens (and for the rest of us who rely on Whole Foods)! Here’s what Alexandria has to say:
Have you ever struggled to find the perfect bottle of wine to go with dinner? How many times have you stood in front of the wine aisle, with no idea which wine to pick? From Cabernet Sauvignons to Tempranillo, and from Chardonnays to Pinot Grigios, how do you pick the perfect wine just judging from the label?
That’s why FTD created an herb and wine pairing guide that helps you choose the perfect wine based on your favorite herbs. Summer is the perfect time to whip up a batch of fresh basil pesto. Why not pair it with a nice glass of fruity Zinfandel, or a rich and buttery Chardonnay? The guide features the 13 most commonly used herbs including: rosemary, sage, mint, and garlic, along with red and white wine pairings. Checkout the guide below to help you plan your next meal!
