In this series, I select duos of Belgian wines to match a particular asparagus dish. My not-so-secret intent is to on the one hand showcase delicious wines from our little wine country, and hopefully provide some inspiration for your own quest for the holy asparagus grail: those divine combinations of wine and the ‘white gold’. Battle #4: Monovarietal vs. Blend.
In this series, each time we choose two Belgian wines to go with a classic asparagus dish. Battle #3: Chardonnay and the Pinot family.
In this series we focus on classic asparagus dishes, paired with Belgian wines. We’ve set up the test as separate battles, in which each time two carefully selected wines battle for first place. Our second battle: history vs. modernity!
After our general wine pairing tips with asparagus earlier this month, it is time to put a number of actual pairings to the test.
In this series we will focus on classic asparagus dishes, combined with exclusively Belgian wines. We’ve set up the test as separate battles, in which each time two carefully selected wines will battle for first place as the best pairing for an asparagus classic.

This regal vegetable obviously deserves the right liquid punctuation…
