Which wine with veal? Which veal with wine?
Veal Marsala is prepared with Marsala wine, a sweet wine from Sicily. For wine pairing suggestions see our tables.
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.
The following table presents food and wine pairing information, sorted by beef dish. When you click on any veal dish a new page pops up telling you more about that dish and providing additional wine suggestions.
