BEST PINOT NOIR FOODS

Popcorn, cottage cheese, salmon. Re-think your pinot noir food matches with easy suggestions from Master Sommelier Cameron Douglas

Food and pinot noir matches should include fun and interesting experiments.

The best food and wine matches come from dishes with bold yet simple flavours such as smoked salmon, lean medium-rare venison, lamb and beef or a carpaccio of red meat. Pinot noir also likes pairing with foods that have a soft herbal element such as fresh thyme or sage and gentle earthy flavours of lentil or porcini.
