Choosing a Wine to Match Your Veal Dish

Considering that veal is a "white" meat you may be surprised that many people suggest pairing it with selected red wines. Sharp eyes will notice that I said the same thing concerning pairing "white" meat when I discussed wine and food pairing for pork dishes. What about chicken? You'll have to see for yourself. The point is that wine and food pairings can't be expressed in simple rules. There is one exception, if you enjoy such and such a pairing, why not? Whether you select your wine or your veal dish first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the veal and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.
