Best Wines for Pairing with Steak

Steak and other red meats usually pair best with red wines — and dry rosés. The key to this successful pairing is the balance provided by tannins. A result of extended contact with grape skins, tannins give wine color, backbone and astringency. The selections on GAYOT's list of Top 10 Steak Wines span the spectrum of red varietals, from Pinotage to Petite Sirah. We've chosen some of the best wines from each region, including Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, Australian Shiraz and Argentine Malbec. Whether you choose your steak or wine first, be sure to consult our list for the best pairings.
