Steak and Wine Pairings Made Easy

Steak and Wine Pairings Made Easy

One of the questions we get all the time is, "what wine should I pair with this steak?"

That's a hard question because the answer depends on your personal preference. What's your favorite type of wine? How will you be cooking your steak? What sides will you have with it?

All these factors play into wine and steak pairings. But, there's one thing that these pairings have in common: balancing the fat content of your steak with the mouthfeel of your wine.

With that as our rule of thumb, here are some simple guidelines on which steak to pair with your favorite wine.

Ribeye Steak & Cabernet Sauvignon Wine

We call this pair rich and robust. 

The Ribeye is known for its juicy tenderness and marbling. A dark, fruity, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon will bring out the rich flavor in this cut of steak.

Filet Mignon Steak and Chardonnay Wine

This pair is light and mild.

Filet mignon is the most tender of the cuts. It has minimal fat and is a leaner cut so pairing it with a buttery, fresh chardonnay for a smooth and clean finish is the perfect choice. 

Top Sirloin Steak and Red Blend Wine

We call this pair sweet and tangy.

Sirloin is a tender, low-fat cut of steak. It has a bit more structure than a filet and will hold a marinade or rub very well. Pair with a rich and jammy red blend and you have a never ending flavor combination. 

New York Strip Steak and Merlot Wine

Bold and ripe

The New York Strip steak is perfectly complemented by a full-bodied Merlot that will enhance its savory flavors.
