BABY SHOWER PAIRING OF WINE AND FOOD
If you are having a
baby shower that will involve good food and wine, then we have a
great section for you below that discusses the most optimal type
of wine to serve at the baby shower meal:
Beaujolais: Although not that popular at baby shower events,
this fine wine is great with roasted chicken, salad, grilled sausage
and pork chops.
Cabernet Sauvignon: This wine is great
with any b-b-q beef, rib eye/New York steak, filet mignon, duck,
lamb as well as meat loaf and burgers.
Champagne: If you and your baby shower
guests want to drink even more eloquently, champagne goes well with
dim sum, fried oysters, caviar as well as with your breakfast foods
of eggs benedict, any brunch, crepes, lobster omelet and
Chardonnay: A perfect selection if you
are having Pesto, Cesar salad, scallops, sea bass, shrimp scampi, as
well as the good old mac n cheese, fajitas, quesadillas, or pork
Chianti: If you are in the mood for
Italian red sauce dishes as well as pizza, minestrone, eggplant
parmesan, capriccio as well as sirloin steak or wild boar, this is
the baby shower selection for you.
Gewurztraminer: Another not so common
baby shower favorite but great with cheeses, spicy dishes (Chinese)
Merlot: A baby shower favorite and
great with prime rib, corned beef, grilled duck and pot roast.
Pinot Grigio: A light wine that is
great with fish, linguini with clams, raw veggies, hummus and
Pinot Noir: A wine that is great with
many baby shower dishes including chicken with mushrooms, fish
(halibut/mahi mahi/salmon/grilled tuna), ham, risotto, turkey and
Riesling: A fine wine for a baby shower
that is great with shrimp/lobster/crab, hot dogs, pad Thai, Chinese
chicken salad and chicken teriyaki.
Rose: Not a common baby shower wine
unless your having a picnic, but still great with BBQ chicken,
ratatouille (not from the movie), and tuna salad.
Sauvignon Blanc: A great wine with
seafood choices like Caribbean foods, raw oysters, pasta with
seafood, BBQ shrimp as well as fried chicken, guacamole and Greek
Syrah/Shiraz: Not a common bachelorette
party wine, yet great with grilled or tandoori chicken, empanadas,
skirt steak or venison.
Zinfandel: A sweet wine that is great
with BBQ spare ribs and chicken (really anything with BBQ sauce),
chili, beef teriyaki, Mexican meat dishes, and short ribs.
After dinner baby shower wines
After the main course, these other fine baby shower wines are
great to top off the meal:
Muscat: My favorite and great with cookies, crème Brule,
flan, and fruit salad.
Port: An excellent dessert wine as well
as with steak dinners and dates.
