Which wine with game? Which game with wine?
This isn't probably not what you had in mind. Pairing wine and game is never boring. Keep reading if you're game. I would recommend a light wine to accompany a wine game, especially if you are playing on an empty stomach. See below for our suggested wines to accompany a (four-legged) game dish.
So you will go with a red wine to accompany your game. But which red? It depends. Here are a few suggestions for pairing beef and wine. These suggestions are only the beginning. You may take into consideration the spicing, the accompaniments, and sauce, if any. Enjoy! Whether you select your wine or your game dish first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the game and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.The following table presents food and wine pairing information, sorted by game dish. When you click on any game dish a new page pops up telling you more about that dish and providing additional wine suggestions.
