Getting It Right with The Perfect Wines

A meal out in at a Mississauga restaurant is sure to be a memorable experience. Fine dining gives you something to look forward to; a chance to indulge and try new things.

It is in our expert opinion that the best compliment to your meal is always a well-paired wine! If you can’t then look no further. Allow us to open your mind and let your next Mississauga restaurant trip be something to write home about.

Perfectly Paired White Wines

Dry Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine that tends to have a clean, light taste. Pair it with grilled or seared seafood (especially meatier fishes such as tuna or salmon) and pasta dishes consisting of creamier sauces. Simple, oven roasted chicken or even vegetarian meals work well with this wine also.

Why not try a Pinot Grigio with our Grilled Wild West Coast Salmon or Mushroom Ravioli?

Full-Bodied Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a decadent, full-bodied wine. It’s a classic tasting white wine that matches perfectly with simple, hearty dishes such as lasagna, soups and pasta. Chicken and rich shellfish can also handle the robust flavours of this wine.

Why not try a Chardonnay with our Pollo Involtini or Gabriel’s Pasta?

Aromatic Fruity Riesling

Riesling is an aromatic wine offering primarily fruity notes. It has a sweet taste which works well in balancing spices. This makes it a great choice when having more intense flavoured foods such as Indian or Thai cuisine. Spicy meats and ‘hot’ foods make the perfect partner with this wine.

Why not try a bottle of our Riesling, Trius, Niagara’ with our Hot Italian Sausage Sandwich?

Delicious Red Wines

Light Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a lighter red wine. Red wine can be a bit intense for some, however, because it isn’t as heavy as some of the other red wines on this list, we think a Pinot Noir is a perfect introduction to red wine. Pinot Noir goes particularly well with mushroom driven dishes like risotto, pasta and pizza.

Why not try a Pinot Noir with our Rigatoni Funghi or Gabriel’s Margarita Pizza?

Rich Medium Merlot

Merlot is a medium red wine that pairs perfectly with roasted foods. Mediterranean and Italian dishes consisting of roasted vegetables and rich meats such as duck and pork are a great choice. Merlot also works well with chocolate, making it perfect for dessert

Tip- Make sure your chocolate is sweeter than your wine, or it will have a sour taste to it.

Why not try a Merlot with our Tuscany Pizza and finish off with our Homemade Lindt Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse for dessert?

Stong Bold Malbec

Malbec is a bold red that’s just screaming to be paired with strong foods. It works well alongside rich meats that are roasted, smoked and barbequed like steak, chicken and pork.

Why not try a bottle of our Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard, Argentina with our 8-oz Canadian Prime Beef Tenderloin?

Of course, this list isn’t exclusive. There are other varieties of wine such as rosé, sparkling wine and dessert wines to name but a few. We’ve just named some of the most popular options to get you started.
