Wine Pairings for Dishes with Plums

Wine Pairings for Dishes with Plums

as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo & Merrill Bonarrigo

  • Plums are more of a texture and taste food rather than flavor. They can be sweet to tart, have a waxy surface and crisp meaty texture.
  • Different plums have different flavors that range from a woody lemon to apple. It is easier to look at what ingredients complement plums to determine which wine to pair.
  • Foods that tend to be paired with plums are: almonds, hazelnuts, black pepper, vanilla, ginger, raspberries, other stone fruits, medium weight meats like chicken, pork and duck.
  • Fresh plums have a crisp acid that needs a sweet or crisper wine to balance. Wines like Sherry or Tawny Port.
