When we think of paring food with fine wine we usually consider exquisite meals that feature the finest foods served along with premium wines. But on occasion, especially in the winter, we just want some classic comfort food served with a simple table wine. For many, one of the most popular comfort foods is meatloaf since for them it was a traditional meal served at home by mom.
Of course many wine lovers may not stop and think about the wine they serve with meatloaf, but it is possible to find a bottle that will compliment this simple meal perfectly. The best part is there are many kinds that are less than $15 a bottle that will keep the meal simple while augmenting the flavor simultaneously.
Since meatloaf is very similar to meatballs used in some Italian dishes it is no surprise that Italian wines will pare well with this comfort food. A simple Italian red wine will do the trick for the evening but consumers should not forget to use their wine decanters to bring out the flavor in the wine to best go with the meal. For your next meal of comfort food do not forget that there is a perfect wine even for simple classics that reminds of us home.
