Cool Tool: Automated wine and food matching, with recipes

I was recently visiting the Splendid Table website, trying to convince host Lynne Rossetto Kasper to bring her Willamette Valley tour to our winery. Her producer, Sally Swift, politely declined stating that their tour stops have already been finalized.

But, I followed a couple of links and found this cool tool called Wine Matcher. The first part works like an automated wine and food pairing list. You select a wine, and it returns food matches for every meal course – from appetizers right through to dessert.

It also allows you to start with a food, and it returns several wine matches. For example, I selected risotto with mushrooms and it returned Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, and Pinto Gris. That part is useful, but it goes a step further and offers a comprehensive set of recipes that include similar ingredients. The recipes come from a variety of sources and chef’s.

Thanks go to Natalie MacLean for creating this tool.


  • My pleasure! I also offer a free e-newsletter that you might find useful.
