Pasta, Chicken & Salads Wine Pairing


The beauty of pairing wines with Pasta and Chicken is that the choices are endless as their are many red, white and rose wines that will fit the bill. We have chosen a lovely Spanish Verdejo, and French Sancerre as our white selections , along with an easy drinking Italian Blush. We chose a Spanish Tempranillo, and an Italian Tuscany Chianti , along with one of our favourite wine producers , Castelli who have a wonderful  soft and smooth  Merlot that is such a great wine.

Please leave a review , we would love to hear from you with your comments and observations.

Amigo De La Tierra Spanish Verdejo Airen

if you travel to Spain then you will know that this is the white wine the locals love to drink, and it is slowly becoming more recognisable here in UK. We think this wine is just fabulous , please let us know your thoughts.

Spain > Castile-La Mancha
Dry, White, Still wine
85% Verdejo, 15% Airén
Aromas of tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango, overlaid with subtle hints of
fennel and cut grass. On the palate it is well-balanced, not overly powerful but
refreshing and easy to drink.

Volpetto Chianti Reserva DOCG 75cl

This remarkable wine has been receiving very good reviews and was strongly recommended to us in the first instance.  Chianti and pasta almost have to be said in the same breathe and this wine also pairs well with all red meats and cheeses. It is also light enough to be enjoyed simply on its own


Italy > Tuscany
Dry, Red, Still wine
100% Sangiovese
Hand selection of the best Sangiovese grapes. Harvest occurs between the end
September and mid October.
The grapes are destemmed and gently crushed. Fermentation takes place in
concrete vats at a controlled temperature of about 22°C with macro oxygenation
that lasts for 12 days. Frequent delestages and pumping over occurs throughout
fermentation in order to extract colour and achieve soft tannins, followed by
malolactic fermentation. The juice is left in contact with the skins for 8 –10 days.
The wine is then aged for 12 months in Slavonian oak barrels of 20 to 50Hl.

I Castelli Pinot Grigio Blush DOC 75cl

This Italian Rose from the castelli stable of wines is fabulous. We are great fans of the castelli Vineyards as they consistently produce top drawer wines at very reasonable prices. We think you will love this wine, and pairs with all seafood, chicken and salads.

Very pale yellow coloured and pleasant to drink with medium acidity. Has its distinct smell of soil, fruits and pepper but weak on the palate.

Country: Italy
Grape variety: Pinot Grigio
ABV: 13.0 %

Castelli Italian Merlot 75cl

We are great fans of the Castelli wines and the Merlot is no exception. Smooth and silky, easy drinking and amazing value quality for such a reasonably priced wine.

This merlot has a ruby red color. In the bouquet you will find hints of raspberries and blueberries, with a taste that's fruity and round.

Country: Italy
Grape variety: Merlot
ABV: 12 %

Sancerre Saget Domaine De La Perriere 75cl

Sancerre , one of the most famous of  French top quality wines and so justified for the amazing reputation they have. Our Saget Domaine De la Perriere has all the typical chacteristics that you would expect from a wine of this quality.......crisp, dry but refreshing, serve chilled pairing ideally with most seafoods and shellfish. It an also be drunk with white meats like chicken.


Made from Pinot Noir in the heart of the central vineyards. Light silky strawberry flavours that seem to linger forever.
