Pair Up - April 2020

Veganism is a healthy lifestyle that many people follow. Since I love vegetables, I was inspired by the number of recipes I found that fit the vegan format and did not require a lot of specialty ingredients. Vegetables can be challenging to pair with wine because they generally have no fat of their own. Wine benefits by pairing with foods that have fat to smooth out the acid and/or tannins, particularly the tannins. Keep in mind that some wineries use non-vegan products in the production of the wine, like fining (removing solids) with egg whites. So, if you want your pairings to be strictly vegan, you’ll need to seek out information on how the wine has been treated before bottling.

My goal is to create pairings that enhance the flavor of each component. I want to empower you to make your own beverage selections by providing you with the style and flavor profile leaving the producer and price up to you and your trusted retailer. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me via email.

La Sommelierre is on Twitter

Each month I post a link to the monthly articles on Twitter. Historically, I have posted wine-related information. Most often, I posted food and wine pairings, but sometimes just interesting facts on wines, wine making or the grapes themselves. Check them out and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you.

La Sommelierre is here to expand your knowledge of wine... one taste at a time. Look around the website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
