Why do we love Zinfandel?
Following are 20 dishes we can think of off the top of our head that can be excellent pairing partners for (red) Zinfandel — like the wines included in this Vinesse collection.
Some are common pairing partners, while others are suggestions that may be new to you or may not seem to make sense. But all are tried and true, recommended by at least one member of our tasting panel.
As always, the best advice when undertaking any food-and-wine pairing is to experiment. Keep an open mind. You may just find a combination you love.
Without further ado, and in no particular order, here’s that list…
- Barbecued pork ribs
- Leg of lamb
- Pepper steak
- Italian sausage
- Spare ribs
- Turkey (yes, with the Thanksgiving feast)
- Rotisserie chicken
- Spaghetti and meatballs
- Chili and beans
- Tri-tip steak
- Beef stew
Okay, let’s make it 21 so I can include my personal favorite: hamburgers.
Yes, I am a simple man…
