Chambourcin (sham-bor-san). If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time! Often called Missouri’s gateway red, it is a deliciously smooth red wine varietal that has soft tannins and an unmistakable earthiness. These characteristics coupled with a fruity quality make it perfect to pair with many foods. The flavor palate of fall favorites in particular is a great match for this medium to full-bodied red wine.

November is Chambourcin Month, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by pairing your favorite dishes of the season with a glass of Chambourcin today.

Here are some foods that pair especially well with wine made from this French-American hybrid grape:

Cheeses: brie, camembert

Meats: pork loin, short ribs, sausage, hamburger

Seafood: swordfish

Vegetables and Fruit: mushroom, strawberries, figs,

Sauces: red-sauce, mushroom gravy, applesauce

Spices: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon

Sweets: berry cobbler, chocolate cake

… just to name a few! Mix and match to find your best pairing.

Missouri Chambourcin pairs well with a long list of delicious food!
