Food Pairing

Pairing Korbel Extra Dry with Cheeses

  • Cheddar Cheese: Korbel Extra Dry becomes drier when paired with cheddar cheese, which helps balance out the sweetness.
  • Aged Gouda: When paired with aged Gouda, this sparkling wine is a little less sweet and so perhaps will taste more balanced to many.
  • Smoked Gouda: Korbel Extra Dry with smoked Gouda is only a mediocre pairing.
  • Chevre: Korbel Extra Dry with chevre is also just a mediocre pairing.

Korbel Extra Dry with Main Dishes

  • Pasta with Garlic & Olive Oil, Sage: Korbel Extra Dry paired with this pasta dish is OK, though when sage is added to the mix it gets worse.
  • Risotto: This Korbel doesn't change much when paired with risotto.
  • Lox & Cream Cheese: The Korbel is a sparkling wine that goes reasonably well with smoked salmon and cream cheese — it's not the best pairing, but it's not bad either.

Korbel Extra Dry Sparkling Wine

It's not bad, but it's not great. Not first on my list of sparkling wines to have, but I'd have it if offered.
