One principle of food and wine pairing is to pair like food with like wine. This worked out well for us last night as we paired spicy Chili with spicy Henry's Drive Shiraz and sweet Baklava with sweet Villa Baglio Moscato D'Asti.
We picked up Henry's Drive Shiraz for $11.99 at the PLCB clearance sale back in October. It was jammy up front and spicy peppery on the finish and a good match for our chili. This wine received high ratings on CellarTracker and averages $34 on WineSearcher. Essentially sold out, PLCB Product Search still shows a few bottles here and there, but we doubt this is accurate. If you are lucky enough to see a bottle, snag it.
We previously brought Villa Baglio Moscato to a cake party, also in October. We liked it then and we liked it again last night. Light and sweet, refreshing, perfect for Baklava. Would also work with holiday cookies and other treats. Still some available in Center City.
