But with so many wines to choose from, how do you find the perfect match for your dish? Fear not, fellow food and wine enthusiasts! This guide will help you navigate the wonderful world of wine pairings, focusing on three of our most popular Wednesday selections: fish, burgers, and chicken.

Wines for meals

Diving into Delicacy: Wines for Fish

Fish dishes are known for their delicate flavors, so you'll want a wine that complements them without overpowering them. Here are some top picks:

  • Sauvignon Blanc: This crisp, acidic white wine is a classic pairing with fish. Its citrusy notes enhance the natural flavors of the fish, making for a refreshing and balanced combination.

  • Pinot Grigio/Gris: Another great option for lighter fish dishes, Pinot Grigio/Gris offers a touch more body than Sauvignon Blanc. Its subtle fruit flavors and clean finish won't overpower the delicate seafood.

  • Rosé: Don't underestimate the power of rosé! A dry rosé with hints of berry fruit can beautifully complement salmon or tuna, creating a delightful summery vibe.

Burgers: Beyond Beer

Wines for beef dishes

Who says burgers have to be paired with beer? Wine can be a fantastic companion to your favorite burger creation. Consider these options:

  • Pinot Noir: This light-bodied red wine is a versatile choice. Its earthy and slightly fruity notes can stand up to the richness of a burger, while its smooth tannins won't overpower the flavors.

  • Malbec: For a bolder burger with stronger flavors, Malbec offers a perfect match. This Argentinian red boasts notes of plum and blackberry, complementing the savory elements of the burger without being too heavy.

  • Zinfandel: Looking for a touch of spice? Zinfandel, with its peppery notes and hints of fruit, can be a delightful surprise with a juicy burger.

Soaring with Chicken: Wines for the Birds

Chardonnay wine

Chicken dishes offer a wide range of flavor profiles, so your wine pairing can vary depending on the preparation. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Chardonnay: A versatile white wine, Chardonnay can be oaked or unoaked. Unoaked Chardonnay pairs well with lighter chicken dishes, while oaked Chardonnay complements richer, creamier preparations.

  • Riesling: This off-dry white wine offers a touch of sweetness that can beautifully balance spicy or flavorful chicken dishes.

  • Pinot Noir: Our friend Pinot Noir makes another appearance! As mentioned earlier, its light body and slightly fruity notes make it a great partner for grilled or roasted chicken.

Remember, these are just suggestions!  Wine pairing is a journey of exploration. With Puddle Jumpers' 50% off Wine Wednesdays, you have the perfect opportunity to experiment and discover your own favorite combinations. So come on down, grab a delicious meal, and uncork the perfect pairing for your next culinary adventure!
