I'm going to a party next week that will be serving Greek food, what are some good whites that seem to pair well with Greek food?
Looking for a nice white that can go with a variety of dishes (I don't know what is being served)...as for the region I'd think it would be fitting of it were a Greek wine but that is not really a huge factor.Zane,
Are you looking for red or white ? Any dish in particular you would like to pair this with ? Is it a Greek wine per se your looking for ?
The reason is kind of greedy, I prefer whites over red. But you are right about reds being more open when it comes to pairing and I should look in that area as well. (as its not always about me) I know you mentioned pinor noir and malbec but how about a sangiovese?Zane, just the fact that you made an effort and brought the wine will impress your lady's friend. Don't obsess on it.
Some of the Spanish whites would go fine. Just keep away from those on the sweetish side.
Question: I know you specified whites, but I wonder why? For a party at which I was unsure of what would be served, I'd opt for a red as being more versatile. Something like a Pinot Noir or Malbec can be paired with a broad range of foodstuffs. If you give some thought to the possibilties of what will be served (lamb and chicken being likely proteins, for instance), a red might make more sense.
