Wine Pairings for Bistro Food

Bistro food’s bold flavors need full-bodied, simple red wines

Bistro dining means bold flavors in hearty, rustic dishes: garlicky, herb-lashed French country comfort foods from the stew pot, grill, and oven. Unlike classic haute cuisine, which practically demands your most elegant Burgundy and Bordeaux-style bottlings, bistro food is at its best with casual, simple wines. And they’re priced reasonably, often $10 a bottle or less, so they’ll please the purse as well as the palate.
