Wine

Quite a few of Blue Pepper’s dishes contain in excess of fifteen different seeds and sprigs and pods and powders and more varieties of chillies than you can imagine. Matching wine to these dishes is no simple challenge.

Our approach hinges on either of two options – bold, complex red wines that not only stand up to but also enhance the intensity of our food, or, crispy, sharp white wines that cut through the spicy hotness and leave your palate rinsed and fresh for the next bite. So our wine list is naturally biased towards the great old vineyards of France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

But several of our modern dishes, especially with fish, seafood, vegetables and lamb, are lighter, subtly spiced and aromatic. You will be surprised to find how aromatic whites and lighter reds, often from the New World, complement these dishes without destroying their delicate flavours.

Feel free to ask our staff for daring wine suggestions. For instance, if you have never tried a dry, zingy champagne to soothe and clear your palate after some of our spiciest dishes, we urge you to experiment.
