We say a big yes! just know how to match the right wine with the right food... Follow our advice to know which wine to choose to accompany your summer salads!

What wine with a rice salad? The Maestral cuvée of Domaine des Maravilhas

A creamy rice salad with white tuna, finely seasoned with chives and coloured with a few cherry tomatoes. The wine you need: the Maestral cuvée from Domaine des Maravilhas: a cuvée with character to accompany it masterfully!

Here, we find the pretty floral expression and the persistent finish of Clairette, punctuated by a hint of refreshing bitterness. Grenache Blanc, on the other hand, enriches the palate with a beautiful amplitude.

A white wine combining structure and tonicity to invigorate a rice salad without being dominated.

What wine with a tabbouleh? The Bandol rosé of Château Salettes

A crunchy tabbouleh can't do without a rosé! In Bandol, Château Salettes has concocted a gourmet wine to enhance our plate.

An exquisitely fruity nose (yellow peach, apricot, melon), a full, powerful mouth, with a lemony finish. Uexpressive and gourmet rosé to greedyly coat our grains with tabbouleh.

How about a red wine with a salad? Choose the Carignan of Domaine Le Plan-Vermeersch

A Carignan from Domaine Le Plan-Vermeersch, with a sweet nose of small jammy black fruits and fresh figs. Dense on the palate, coated with ripe tannins, which lingers on dark chocolate aromas.

A generous wine to replicate an atypical salad: al dente pasta, served cold, with dried duck breast, black olives, dried tomatoes and pine nuts.

Now that you have settled on the choice of cuvees, all you have to do is find some lovely bowls!
