Pairing food with wine can be a difficult task, but it doesn't have to be. When it comes to Pinot Noir, there are a few key things to keep in mind. First, this wine is best served slightly chilled. This will help to bring out the fruit flavors that are characteristic of Pinot Noir. Secondly, because Pinot Noir is a lighter bodied wine, it pairs well with lighter fare. Here are some suggestions :
- Roasted chicken or turkey
- Grilled salmon
- Herbed pasta dishes
- Mushroom risotto
- Roasted beet salad
- Cheese platters with a variety of cheeses, crackers, and fruit

"Hi l am Wim, sommelier, and wine enthusiast just like you! My fellow sommeliers understand the importance of serving wine at the correct temperature. They know that if wine is too warm, it will lose its flavors and complexities, and if wine is served too cold, it will numb your taste buds. A few world renown sommeliers and myself will explain this further, and share some interesting (taste) case studies."
