Eat, drink and be merry!

Our favourite wine and food pairings for the festive season.

Wine and food pairing can get a bit crazy, especially at this time of year. However it needn't be confusing and shouldn't be intimidating. 

Matching people and wine is perhaps more important, so once you have that sorted out you might like to try some of our favourite combinations. The trick is to match the intensity of the food and wine. 

Cava Beso De Rechenna Brut Nature Reserva NV with crayfish, or Spanish jamón, or croquettes.
