Autumn marks the season for warm family get-togethers over meals laden with seasonal favorites such as pumpkins, apples, squash, and figs. Complementing these with wine can be tricky, especially with the wide variety of wine options on the market. Here are few ways to help you find the perfect wine to match autumn’s delectable food selection.
Nothing celebrates the chill in the air like a good old-fashioned family pot roast. Sumptuous and meaty, this dish is best paired with an equally hearty wine. A glass of full-bodied cabernet sauvignon or merlot is a great way to bring out the dish’s beefiness, with the warmth of the wine balancing out the strong, rich flavor of the beef. This pairing evens out the palate, turning a simple pot roast into a gourmet feast.
