What Wines To Drink With Fish On Good Friday

Traditionally, on Good Friday, many people refrain from eating meat and instead opt for fish. Yes, we know fish is technically meat too. Fish is the flesh of an animal used for food, and by that definition, it's meat. However, many religions don't consider it meat and opt for fish especially on Good Friday. Now that we covered that tidbit we can move on to some great pairing choices that will be delightful options for most fish.

When it comes to pairing wine with fish, a crisp and light white wine is usually the best choice. Fruity white wines, such as a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Grigio, can complement the flavors of the fish without overpowering them. If you prefer a sweeter option, a Riesling or a Gewürztraminer can also be a good pairing. Ultimately, the best wine to pair with fish on Good Friday (or any day really) will depend on your personal taste and the specific dish you are serving. We hope this helps you take the guess work out of what wines go with fish without delving too deep and getting crazy with this topic. Cheers!
