RED WINES

When you plan a dinner party, there’s nothing like red wine to complement any hearty dishes you serve. Its rich, fruit-forward taste plays off the ingredients to elevate even an everyday meal to gourmet standards. Finding the right wine for the right occasion requires some skill. It’s easy to assume that you can pair a Merlot, Zinfandel or a Pinot Nair with anything. You can, just as long you enjoy both.

From the eclectic green pastures of France to the golden hills of Northern California, a diverse range of red wine types – from light to bold – make their way to tables across the world from a wide mix of growing regions. Red wines can vary widely in taste, body, color, scent, and the overall experience they provide. Finding the right wine for the right occasion requires some skill. It’s easy to assume that you can pair a Merlot, Zinfandel or a Pinot Noir with anything. However, differences in region, climate and vintage yield nuances in the wines, which create an added layer to finding the perfect wine for any occasion.

Taking care to note the essentials – grape variety, growing season, body, origin and more – our breakdown of red wines will help fill the void for anyone looking to fine-tune their wine collections or find the perfect red wine for any meal.

“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink, I feel shame! Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out of work, and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, ‘It is better that I drink this wine and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.” – Jack Handey
