 PIZZA & PASTA

Which wine goes best with pasta? Here’s some advice that’s more about a state of mind than specific focus on flavours. When we say ‘pizza’ we really mean all those things we like to eat lounging on the couch in our trackie dacks. It’s nights like these that you need easy going, unassuming wines that pleasure the mouth without taxing…

 SIMPLE SEAFOOD

What wine should I drink with seafood?Great fresh seafood should always be given the respect it deserves and treated simply so its natural flavours can shine through. All it really needs is a squeeze of lemon, so think of your wine matches the same. White wines with strong citrus characters, we’re thinking Sauv Blanc here, are perfect paired with seafood.
