You don't need to be a sommelier to expertly pair your wine with your food, although it can sometimes feel a little intimidating.
More and more restaurants are offering helpful advice about which wine to order with which dish in order to bring out the very best taste in both, doing away with the mystique of the process.
Why not experiment with some tasty pairings at home, too?
Here, we've selected five wines from the Wines We Love range at Centra, handpicked by their expert wine team to make choosing your wine easy. With bottles starting at just €8, they're great value too!
This is a crisp and lush Sauvignon Blanc that has an apple bite and a rich display of citrus fruits.
Usually paired with: Seafood and salad
We paired with: Guacamole.
*Top Tip*: Squeeze extra lime into your guac; the acids in the wine and the guac will mingle fantastically
A juicy Malbec, full of dark fruit flavours and a hint of coffee and cocoa.
Usually paired with: A nice, juicy steak.
We paired with: Extra dark chocolate, a perfect match for the dark fruit flavours in this Malbec.
A wine with just the right amount of fizz to match a brilliant crisp apple finish.
Usually paired with: Canapés
We paired with: Class up your night in with Prosecco and melon wrapped in parma ham - magnifico!

Sendas Del Rey Tempranillo - €8
Tempranillo makes soft red wines with a red berry and cherry flavour plus a gentle touch of vanilla giving a smooth finish.
Usually paired with: Grilled meats, pasta and burgers
We paired with: Sun-dried or slow-roasted tomatoes to double down on that Italian goodness. Antipasti board, perhaps?
Cheers to that!
