Wines with Filo

In this week’s WEEKEND magazine, Olly recommends wines to enjoy with delicious simple dishes prepared with ready-to-use filo pastry and a handful of everyday ingredients.

Mushroom, Chestnut, Squash and Feta Filo Pie

Olly’s wine pairing: Specially Selected French Roussanne 2022 (13%) £7.99, Aldi

Blessed with a wonderfully luxurious texture, this roussanne is mellow yet mighty, with a hint of apricot and plenty of attitude.

Sweet Summer Fruit, Custard and Cream Filo Pie

Olly’s wine pairing: Brown Brothers Orange Muscat & Flora (37.5cl, 9.5%) £8.50, Tesco

One of the most reliable sweet wines on the market, this is delightfully scented like a magical mandarin – as well as being lip-smackingly gorgeous when teamed up with berries.

Salmon, Sweet Pepper, Red Onion and Tzatziki Filo Pie

Olly’s wine pairing: Just The Juice Vermentino 2021 (12.5%) £9.99,

A citrus turbo boost with a subtle tropical twist, this Sicilian stunner is delightful with this aromatic pie. It’s an excellent aperitif wine too.

Sausage, Fennel, Tomato and Ricotta Filo Pie

Olly’s wine pairing: Langhorne Creek Cabernet 2020 (14.5%) £8, Sainsbury’s

A fabulously rich, hearty red with satisfying depth, this is a superior partner for your sausage pie.
