Pairing Thai Curry with Sparkling Wine

A delicious Spicy and Cream Curry served up to you with a Glass of Award-Winning Bubbly, if you love Curry, what could be better than that? How about two plates and two glasses, today we’re pairing the famous Thai Red and Thai Green Curry with two different Award-Winning Sparkling Wines.

The Green Curry gets its name from the green chilies that give the Curry a Green colour, the Curry is made from Green Chilies, Coconut Milk and Chicken. As this Curry takes on a sweeter taste and appears as a ‘creamy mild green’ colour, in Thai its sometimes referred to as ‘Sweet Green’.

The Green Curry appeared either back during King Rama VI or Rama VII’s reign of Thailand, between the years 1908-1926.

The Red Curry is another popular Thai Curry made from Red Curry Paste, Coconut Milk and Meat, either Chicken, Duck, Beef, Pork or Seafood, the Red colour comes from the dry red spur chilies.

To complete the dish, it is served with Jasmine rice, vegetable spring rolls and prawn crackers.

Pairing Notes

Pairing Notes with the Villa Sandi Opere

Red –A fizzy burst of lemon, floral and fruity characters are added to the curry which intensifies in spiciness, leaving enhanced savoury chicken flavours.”

Green – “The Creamy green curry when combined with the Villa Sandi becomes elegant, the creaminess puts on a crown and raises the herbal notes until the close when the savoury chicken flavours come back with classic force at the close.”

Pairing Notes with the VentiVenti Blanc de Blancs

Red – “The Sparkling Wine subtlety comes rushing through, lifting all the spices to take precedence for a moment, this combination lifts the spicy notes above what they are without losing the savoury chicken flavours.”

Green – “The Sparkling Wine comes in perfectly and complements the creaminess, it takes nothing away, it simply helps the spicy flavours appear from the beneath the herbal and chicken notes.”
