Pairing Wine with Duck

November 10, 2012

Today’s game is not likely to be a pretty one. But the meal beforehand can and should be.

If you are feasting on Oregon duck, you will be happy to know that duck pairs well with many different wines. I especially like’s recommendations.

Their site features six different recommendations. Depending on how you prepare the duck, you can go with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Tempranillo on the milder side or Syrah and Zinfandel on the heavier side. And of course you can always enjoy a sparkling wine with duck.

My wish for today is that the game is as wonderful a surprise as the incredible duck that is served before the game.

Cheers to a WINEderful ducky upset!
