Pâté de Campagne and Pinot Noir make a great food and wine pair
Savvy match: A fruit-forward wine with fresh acidity pairs beautifully with the savory deliciousness of this dish which traces its origins back to the Middle Ages.
A pâté de Campagne, or country terrine, is a rustic preparation, technically, a terrine, perfumed with herbs and spices, a satisfying concoction of succulent ingredients. This is a simple yet delectably impressive appetizer for your next dinner or party. Served with pickles and grain mustard alongside some cheeses, this makes for an excellent centerpiece for a wine tasting party or light lunch. Lyon is the spiritual home of charcuterie, and the local wine is Beaujolais; Gamay is also a perfect pairing.
