Complement the centerpiece of the banquet table with the right wine

Ahh lechon&who can resist it? Its crisp brown skin makes your mouth water with every bite; its succulent meat bathed in savory liver sauce is simply tender, flavorful and heavenly!

Truly, lechon is one of the best dishes in the Filipino culinary repertoire. This wood roaster fare is definitely the star of every banquet. Majestically lying on the dinner table, the lechon naturally lures foodies who just can't wait to sink their teeth on its goodness.

For Filipinos, special occasions like anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and Christmas parties are often graced with lechon as this food fare always seem to add excitement and fun to any celebration. And when there is lechon, no beverage matches its regality but red wine.

The wine harmonizes perfectly with lechon as it does not overpower the flavor of the meat. The medium bodied wine is characterized by hints of blackberry and plum, with a slightly sweet aftertaste that complements the garlicky, sweet and sour nuances present in lechon sauce. It also neutralizes the fat in lechon meat.

According to Jemelleen Gonzales of the famous Sosoy's lechon in ParaƱaque, "Red wine is great to pair with lechon. Masarap at nakakapagpagana. Our customers usually order softdrinks or beer when eating lechon, but now, they are discovering the delicious tandem of red wine and lechon.

William Chua of Pingping Lechon explains "Filipinos are not really wine drinkers but they are adventurous when it comes to food and drinks. Nung nasubukan nilang ipares ang red wine at lechon, nasarapan sila," he shares, adding that, "this pair is something different. It's new and therefore a must try."

Like lechon, a glass of red wine celebrates all the best in life - good food, good company and good times.
