Most red wines are typically paired with foods with bold flavors. Red wines have a strong taste, and it needs food with an equal or stronger taste so you can taste the difference between the wine and the food. Pairings include:
White wines are elegant, simple and light. They should be served chilled, some to colder degrees than others. They are considered much more delicate than their red wine counterparts. That being said, white wines tend to pair well with lighter flavor so as not to upset the balance upon the palate.
As a rule of thumb, the lighter the food, the lighter the wine. So if you’re planning to host a dinner party, make sure to have your white wines chilled and ready for serving with appetizers and salads. And if your main dish is a heavier offering, have your bottles of red ready to go. Remember to indulge the way that tastes right to you. Some people prefer to stick with white wine throughout the course of their meal despite the changing tastes of the food from light to heavy and if that’s what feels comfortable on your palate, go with it.
