Wines for Plant-Based foods
January 1st, 2023 | Mary Domange
Whether you are a full time vegetarian or vegan, or prefer to eat a more plant-based diet after the Christmas festivities, a delicious glass of wine can take even the most humble supper to the next level. Here are a few of our favourite wines to pair with vegetable and grain based dishes.
While I am not a vegetarian or a vegan, I do prefer to eat a largely plant-based diet, very often washed down with a delicious glass of ethically made, organic wine. In the spirit of drink less, drink better and being conscious of the provenance of what I consume, here are some of my favourite wines for vegetable and grain based dishes.
It's not the colour that counts
Both red wine and white wine will work and as I've said before, the most important things to consider are the weight of the wine - how full bodied or how light it is, how aromatic the wine is and whether the food is salty, spicy, sweet or all three!
All of the wines below are also vegan so work for anyone on a fully plant-based diet. For more about what constitutes a vegan wine, please read my blog here.
Best wines to drink with grains and pulses
One of the most exciting things about pairing many of the most common plant-based and vegetarian foods with wines is that there are so many options.
