An old rule of thumb states: «Red wine with red meat, white wine with fish.»

But let's be honest, a delicate lemon-butter fillet of sole doesn’t belong in the same category as a salt-crusted sea bream with olives and herbs, does it? And that’s exactly the key to pairing wine: how the food is prepared. Red wine needs bold flavours – roasted, herby aromas, fatty fish like salmon, tuna or swordfish and starchy sides like crispy roast potatoes. If you prepare your fish like that, then your favourite red is the perfect pairing.
