A Fine Wine and Salad Pairing

Goat cheese salad and French wine

Which wine with salad? Which salad with wine?

What a classic combination, goat cheese salad and French wine such as Sancerre. And some claim that wine and salad can't be matched. Actually it is hard to match this classic wine and salad pairing.

Choosing a Wine to Match Your Salad

I remember a time when it was said that wines and salad don't go together, and the recommended drink was mineral water. Times change. Enjoy! Whether you select your wine or your salad first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the salad and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.
