Tread lightly when trying to pair wine with creamy mushroom pasta – it can be tricky! The earthy flavors from mushrooms combined with the hearty flavor of a white sauce pasta dish can leave mild wines tasting like water. Avoid delicate whites like Italian Soave or South African chenin blanc. These lightweights don't stand a chance against a 'shroomy pasta's robust flavor. Go for something that will blend better; these three types will not only stand out, they will shine.
