How to Pair Non-Alcoholic Wine with Food

Just because you're not drinking alcohol doesn't mean you can't enjoy a great glass of wine with lunch, hors d'oeuvres or dinner. And just like alcoholic wines, the same pairing concepts apply. Here are a few basic rules to keep in mind and then some specific suggestions.

Pair Lighter Food with Lighter Wines

If you're eating shellfish, white fish, light chicken dishes or salads, choose a still or sparkling white or rose wine. Look for something with citrusy and herbal flavors that will complement the food.
Our Recommendations:

Pair Spicy Food with a Little Sweetness

Spicy cuisine - especially Asian - goes great with a slightly sweeter wine. The sugar helps to temper the spice. You don't want a full-on dessert-style wine, just something with a little higher sugar content.
Our Recommendations:

Pair Heartier Dishes with Richer Wines

Whether it's red meat, roast pork chops or grilled tuna, you don't want your non-alcoholic wine to get overpowered by the food. Choose a red or heartier rose wine that will stand up to the bigger flavors of the food.
