Food Pairings

All Edmeades wines pair wonderfully with a variety of dishes. The diversity of the wines across the Edmeades portfolio makes our wines friendly to both simple meals and truly gourmet fare.


Char-broiled burgers, slathered in your favorite sauce, are a natural partner for these robust, fruity Zins. Barbecued chicken, eggplant Parmesan or a rich winter stew of short ribs also are ideal. Game is a classic pairing, as are lentils. Edmeades Zins have a special affinity for goat cheese or smoked Gouda. Other great pairings include Beef Short Rib Tacos, Tri-tip with Zinfandel Sauce, Sweet & Sour Bacon Chutney, or Zinfandel Chili.

Edmeades' Folly

This fun wine suggests fun, simply-prepared foods: barbecue, sausages with pasta, burgers, pizza, or roasted chicken. Lamb curry works, as does a creamy pesto pasta with sautéed wild mushrooms. Other great pairings include Merlot & Cherry Cola Lamb Shanks, Spicy Chicken Meatballs, or a Turkish Spiced Eggplant Bruschetta.


The off-dry finish of our Gewurz pairs well with slightly sweet Chinese and Vietnamese fare (think a crispy spring roll), as well as Gewurz’s classic Alsatian partner, the sauerkraut, potato, ham and bacon stew known as choucroute. Or sip it after dinner, with a cool raspberry sorbet. Other great pairings include Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Yellow Tomato & Melon Bruschetta with Mint & Jalapeno, or a Thai Pork Satay.
