Whether you’re looking to find an affordable new mainstay bottle for weeknight dinners, incorporate dessert wines into your routine, or learn how orange wine is made, Wine Style has you covered. And what could be a more delicious and fun way to explore different varietals than by cooking the perfect complementary snacks and dishes to go with them? You’re bound to find new favorites—in foods and wines alike—with winning combinations such as baked lemony feta with crisp white wine; caramelized cabbage and onion galette with a serious red; smoked salmon spaghetti with sparkling wine; and so much more.
Discover new wines alongside incredible—and incredibly easy—recipes. With its modern approach to food and drink, Wine Style injects some much-needed fun into the world of wine tasting.
