5 Wine Pairings for St. Patrick's Day
Posted: Mar 12 2015
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Traditionally, this holiday means green-tinted beer, but for those of us out there who prefer the grape over the hops, we’ve created just the guide for you. We worked with some of our favorite food bloggers to gather recipes for several festive dishes and paired each of them with a complementary varietal. Click on the links below to get the full recipe.
With your Genesis, you can serve a different wine with every course with no worry about it spoiling. Simply pop on an IntelliCork, apply WineGas, and preserve the open wine for up to 2 months. Click here to learn more about this technology and how it works.
- Corned Beef & Cabbage with Pinot Noir: pinot provides some acidity to balance this traditionally boiled meat dish.

- Shepard’s Pie with Zinfandel: a fruity zin creates a lively contrast to this heavy meat dish.

- Guinness Beef Stew with Merlot: our favorite pairing is merlot, but any red wine with a lot of tannins would go well with this rich, tender stewed beef.

- Colcannon (buttery blend of potatoes with kale) with Riesling: a slightly sweet wine will pair great with this salty, buttery side dish.

- Irish Coffee Brownie Cupcakes with Muscat or Port: this sweet chocolate dessert will go well with a sweet port or muscat (if you choose a wine that isn’t sweet, it may end up tasting tart).
