Spring Fling: Gluten-Free Pie Drink Pairings That’ll Leave You Wanting More!

Hey there, gluten-free folk! Spring is in full swing, and you know what that means – it's time to bust out the pies and get your taste buds dancing. But hold up, before you dive headfirst into that delicious gluten-free crust, let's talk about the perfect pairings to take your pie game to the next level.

We're all about sass and class here, so get ready to elevate your spring feasting with some seriously sassy drink pairings that'll have you saying, "Move over, there's a new boss in town!"

Let's kick things off with our Chicken, Leek, and Bacon Pie, because let's face it, everything's better with bacon, right? This savoury sensation calls for a glass of crisp, cold Chardonnay to accompany it. Forget that old saying…ABC (Anything But Chardonnay!) Modern Chardonnays smack with bright acidity and those fruity notes complement the richness of the bacon and the earthiness of the leeks, creating a symphony of flavours that'll leave you craving another. (Just try not to finish the whole bottle before you eat your scrumptious pie! We know how good a crisp Chardonnay can be!)

Next up, our Steak, Ale, and Chestnut Mushroom Pie, a true British classic that demands a bold partner. Indulge in the hearty goodness of steak, ale, and chestnut mushrooms encased in a golden gluten-free crust. This robust pie pairs perfectly with a bold Cabernet Sauvignon. The deep, dark fruit flavours of the wine enhance the richness of the steak and the earthiness of the mushrooms, creating a pairing that's as satisfying as it is sophisticated. (Our mouths are drooling just thinking about it 🤤)

Now, let's talk about the Devon delight, the Homity Pie. What pairs more flawlessly with this timeless, decadent blend of cheese, potatoes, onions, than a classic Devonshire Crisp Cider? (We like to stick to our roots!)

The refreshing swig of a cold cider cuts through the richness of the pie, leaving your palate cleansed and ready for another bite….and another and another!

Now …for all you gluten free veggies and vegans - Spice things up with our Veggie Tagine Pie, bursting with flavour: parsnips glazed in vegan sherry, with butternut squash, chick peas and apricots in a richly spiced tomato sauce in a gluten free crust. Just delicious!

Pair this veggie delight with a glass of spicy sangria for a fiesta of flavours. The sangria's fruity sweetness complements the pie's savoury spices, creating a harmonious balance that'll transport you to the bustling streets of Marrakech with every bite.

Last but not least but any means our Mushroom Stroganott Pie pairs perfectly with a Smooth Pinot Noir: Get ready for a taste sensation with a mushroom stroganott pie that's creamy, savoury, and utterly irresistible. Perfect for vegans, why not enjoy this pie with a smooth pinot noir (vegan of course…check the label!) for a pairing that's as elegant as it is delicious. The light-bodied nature of the wine allows the earthy flavours of the mushrooms to shine, while the hints of spice and oak complement the pie.

There you have it, folks – the sassiest and most mouth watering savoury pie pairings to spice up your springtime feast. Whether you're hosting a dinner party or simply treating yourself to a cosy night in, these flavour-packed combos are sure to impress. So, grab a fork, pour yourself a glass, and get ready to indulge in a pie experience like no other. Cheers to spring, savoury pies, and living your most delicious life!
