Best Pairings Of Wine And Meat

World of wines

Wines are a thing of class and should always be eaten with the right kind of food in order to bring out the flavour and tantalise the taste buds.

With our variety of meats that we at Licious bring you to our doorstep within 90 minutes, here’s an all-you-need-to-know guide to wines and meat that will make your perfect dinner night.


Wine with lamb

Lamb is a lot more delicate than other red meats and a lighter and delicate wine is what will go with it. Another thing with Lamb is that it takes on the flavour of the sauce so lighter the sauce, lighter the wine. With lamb chops, serve a mature Spanish Rioja, a Cabernet Sauvignon from California or a Washington state Merlot.  Malbec, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Touriga Nacional and Petit Verdot will work wonders with lamb, so buy mutton at Licious today!


Champagne goes with anything salty and where else would you find the best, home delivered fish meat than Be it shrimp crackles, cocktail prawns or lobsters, Champagne is your company.


Chardonnay goes with fatty fish dishes or fish dishes with spicy and tangy sauces. This includes fish curries, lobsters, and prawns. To get the freshest fish, buy online at Licious!

Old world wines

What’s better than old world wines with old world food? Heavy meatball pasta and roasted chicken lasagna is the way to go. Buy the raw chicken online at Licious to prepare your lasagna!


Malbec won’t be overshadowed by sweet-spicy barbecue sauces and goes best with steaks, grills, and BBQ dishes. It’s a kind of wine that goes with heavily barbecued and grilled meat that is mixed well with rich sauces.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Merlot

These rich red wines are fabulous with juicy red meat. They are good choices with broiled lamb. For a Middle Eastern-style kabob with spicy sauces, reach for the brighter flavors of Cabernet Franc, Syrah from California or Shiraz from Australia.


A Simple roast chicken goes with anything from Chardonnay to Pinot Noir. When seasoned with rosemary and garlic pairs well with Merlot, French Beaujolais or a light Australian Shiraz.

With curried chicken, an Alsatian Gewürztraminer or a dry California sparkler is the best. Chicken in a mustard sauce is fine with a light red wine, such as Cabernet Franc, or an oaky Chardonnay.

Fried chicken pairs well with a dry rosé from Spain or southern France, or a fruity California Sauvignon Blanc.
