Pairing Wines with Venison

Enhance the flavors of game meat with the perfect bottle of wine

Pairing wine with venisonOver the years, game like venison has seen increased popularity at dinner parties and special functions. Where beef and pork steaks and even lamb chops had once dominated, venison has begun to shine. There is, however, a question that many people who want to serve venison steaks at classy gatherings always seem to encounter: what wine goes with venison?

The flavor of venison is rich and gamey, but it’s also quite lean, so finding the best wine to go with it is a bit tough. Susy Atkins of The Telegraph, however, has found the answer: north-west Italian reds made from the nebbiolo grape. Wines made with the nebbiolo grape are graceful and smooth, but intensely flavored, able to match the complex textures and tastes of venison.

In fact, it’s red wine that seems to go best with venison, as Matching Food and Wine also recommends a modern Spanish red wine with a delicious serving of roast venison. Full-bodied reds compliment venison quite well, and chefs also often experiment with using red wines to marinate and boil venison, or even just as a sauce to go along with beautiful cuts of the meat.
