Pairing Wine with Lighter Foods

5 wines to think of when pairing with light fare

Brazilian Fish Stew

Brazil is going to become more important in the coming years, so you better start getting to know their cuisine, not to mention their wines.

Being a vast country with very diverse ethnic influence, it is no surprise that Brazilian food is sort of a misnomer. Like we would with wine regions, let’s work with the broadest definitions before drilling down to specific appellations and the like. Brazil has a long coastline, so seafood plays an important role in the diet.

Fish stew, or Moqueca, is a staple in Brazil and there are countless riffs on its main theme, though most include coconut milk. This version from Esprito Santo is light and fresh with plenty of flavor coming from peppers and tomatoes. This flavor combination makes it a surprisingly good partner for a light, fruity Schiava-based wine that gets a bit of extra punch from the inclusion of a bit of Lagrein.

    According to the label, Cono Sur is a Chilean wine, not Argentinian - or have they branched out?
