Birthday Dinner Wine Pairing Help

winegod | Nov 9, 2011 01:54 PM

Hello – I am preparing a 5 course meal for my sister’s birthday this Saturday. While I am a relatively experienced chef, I am very new to pairing specific wines to multiple courses and am looking for some feedback. From a price perspective, I am looking to keep each bottle below $20. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Below are the courses:

1. Scallop tartar, cucumber, green apple, chive, hackleback roe, ginger oil
2. Sweet potato ravioli, sage cream sauce
3. Red snapper with a Thai cocunut curry sauce, cilantro rice, Chinese broccoli or another green veg
4. Saddle of rabbit stuffed with its dark meat, swiss chard, roasted potatoes, carrots, and brussels, pancetta, gremolata
5. Hazelnut tart

Thanks again!
