Food and Wine Pairings


For Big wines you need bold flavours and the Elephant wines need a protein pairing that will take your Elephant experience to a higher level. For the kind of full-throttle food and wine matching experience you just have to think about the weight and flavour profile of the wine and then you have a basis for exploring the many wonderful food and wine combinations possible.



Elephant in the Room Food and Wine Suggestions

  • Shiraz with big proteins like Beef and Lamb 
  • Pinot Noir is a perfect pairing for Duck and lentils 
  • Lamb and Cabernet is a match made in heaven 
  • Roast Pork and Grenache is a great flavour marriage of weight and body
  • Merlot and mushroom ragu – think earthy and soft 
  • Chardonnay and Chicken – another great partnership that is harmonious
  • Fiano and creamy seafood pasta with dill – Fiano’s fruit and acid works well with a creamy sauce
  • Tempranillo with smoked meats, risotto or Paella – a simple Spanish combination
