Dolmades Drink Pairing

Try a glass of wine to complement the savory flavors of these dolmades. The accent is on Riesling or Vermentino. While Riesling’s subtle sweetness and acidity balance the luscious olives and feta, Vermentino’s zesty citrus and herbal hints add a breath of fresh air with every mouthful.

Souvlaki with Lamb Drink Pairing

A robust wine is required to complement this dish’s tender and delicious lamb. The stage is set for Grenache or Merlot. Merlot’s smooth texture and plum overtones make for a delightful combination, elevating the entire pleasure, while Grenache’s robust berry and spice aromas harmonize with the savory lamb.

Moussaka Drink Pairing

A bold wine is required for the moussaka’s layers of eggplant, minced meat, and b├ęchamel. Just type in Tempranillo or Barbera. A symphony of flavors is created on the palate as the savory layers are complemented by Barbera’s natural fruitiness and well-balanced acidity, and the rich and spicy Tempranillo elevates the meal.

Spanakopita Drink Pairing

A wine that accentuates the intricacy of the flaky layers of phyllo pastry encasing the spinach and feta is the perfect accompaniment to this Greek dish. The spotlight is on Chardonnay or Malbec. A delightful confluence of flavors is achieved when Chardonnay, with its buttery texture and vanilla notes, complements the richness of the pastry, and Malbec, with its robust and fruity qualities, adds depth.

Greek Salad Drink Pairing

A Greek salad is complete with a fabulous accompaniment to complement its colorful mix of crunchy veggies, tangy feta, and salty olives. Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio are here. Sauvignon Blanc’s zesty citrus and herbal overtones balance the feta’s richness, and Pinot Grigio’s light and crisp personality brings out the Salad’s freshness; the two wines go wonderfully together.
