With autumn ending and the cold winter wind blowing, nothing is better than enjoying the few warm evenings left with a nice glass of Riesling or Cabernet Sauvignon wine and some comfort food. Invite your friends to enjoy together the nice autumn evening while you can. No need to cook fancy chef-approved dishes. Wines pair perfectly with junk food also. Join us in exploring comfort foods and wine winning combinations.

Pizza & Chianti


Pizza and wine is the most common food and wine combination; inevitable part of almost any party or small gathering. This time we suggest you try the Italian “Chianti Classico” from Tuscany.

Fried Chicken & Sparkling Wine

Fried chicken pairs perfectly with Champagne, Cava, Prosecco or any other sparkling wine, as long as it’s dry. You can try the Californian “Brut Excellence”.

Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Munchkins & Tawny Port

When matching food with sweet wine, it is advisable to choose something sweater, to make the wine drier. So, the next time you eat cinnamon or chocolate munchkins, try the extraordinary Ramos Pinto Ten-Year Tawny, Quinta de Ervamoira, from Oporto, Portugal.

Chicken Pot & Riesling


If you like this rich and creamy filling like us, you can pair it perfectly with Reisling. You can buy Riesling wine online from any reliable online store.

“Smart Fries” & Prosecco

This incredibly tasty smart fries are not only meant for your kids. If you haven’t tried them yet, do it now! We are literally hooked on them! :))) Once the kids are in bed, treat yourself with these smart fries and a glass of the Italian Ferrari Brut Metodo Classico NV from Trento DOC.

Popcorn & Chardonnay

Buttery microwave popcorn is the ideal movie snack and when combined with nice Blanc wine, you’ve got yourself a winning combination. Combine the popcorn with the French wine Oliver Leflaive Bourgogne Blanc Les Setilles that can be found in every well stocked online store.

Chips (Salsa) & Riesling


If you are more into spicy salsa, choose the white wine that is sweet. We suggest you buy Riesling wine online, especially the Californian Brooks 2012 “Sweet P” Riesling.

Veggies (Ranch Dip) & Sauvignon Blanc

Dip your veggies in the amazing creamy ranch dip and combine it with the tasty Sauvignon Blanc. Try the French Chateau Lamothe 2012 Bordeaux (Blanc).

Bittersweet Chocolate & Lambrusco

Try and combine the bittersweet chocolate with this sweet red sparkling Italian wine Cleto Chiarly N.V. Lambrusco Grasparossa di Castelvetro.
