Great sushi calls for a great beer or sake. Why not open a bottle of something that’s got the best of both worlds? Poochi Poochi is a sparkling sake that has enough sugar to pair well with spicy foods but is dryer than a typical sake. Yet this wine is delicate and pairs well with the nuanced flavors of a grand sushi blow out.
Who says red wine can’t be paired with an egg salad sandwich? Not us. We recommend a Beaujolais to go with the humble egg salad sandwich. It’s fruity and light with low acid. That’s important because the sulfur from the eggs can become overwhelming if paired with a wine that’s too acidic. Beaujolais is light bodied. It’s not uncommon to chill a Beaujolais, even though it’s a red wine. Surprised? Stick with us, we’ll help you navigate the unexpected and the curve balls this crazy, nutty, fancy-pants wine world can throw at you.
