Bright red wines are the fresh light reds, food-friendly and versatile, perfect in the summer slightly chilled and at the Thanksgiving table, but have the seriousness to drink all year long.
Food Pairing and Preparation: Bright wines are food boundary- crossers, pairing beautifully with strong-flavored fishes, seared or smoked. Crustaceans. Cured meats or soft cheeses. Baked, sautéed or roasted chicken, pork or veal prepared with savory herbs, tomatoes, garlic or shallots bring out the best in these wines.
