Four simple yet foolproof pairings to bring the best out of food and wine, because sometimes, less is more.

When choosing the best food for a glass of wine, we often must avoid getting too complicated and looking for elaborate combinations. Sometimes the wisest thing to do is to opt for the simplest.

White asparagus with vinaigrette

Since white asparagus have a much milder flavor than green asparagus, they are less herbal, more delicate, and have a softer texture. They pair very well with white wines. If served with a vinaigrette based on olive oil and lemon, a Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc can be an excellent choice, thanks to its citrus and fresh green herbs.

Grilled Sole

If you are lucky enough to get fresh fish with a mild flavor and delicate white meat, such as sole, take the opportunity to grill it and eat it only with salt and a glass of fresh wine with a coastal influence, such as Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc—a combination where the saying “less is more” is fully accomplished.

Fresh oysters

Do you know that oysters are the best source of bioavailable Zinc? Zinc is essential for the functioning of our white blood cells, which are our body’s primary detoxification system. This is why raw, freshly opened oysters are one of the purest and healthiest foods you can try. With a splash of lemon juice and a glass of Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, this pair is one of the noblest appetizers around.

Pea Soup

In pea season, nothing is tastier than eating them raw, just out of their pods, and enjoying their sweetness. Another option is to prepare a delicious soup to savor the creaminess of this ingredient. It will pair well with citric and herbaceous white wine such as Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc.
