If anything positive has come from COVID-19, it’s that we can now serve bottles of wine with your takeout food orders. This means that, in addition to meals prepared by award-winning chefs, you can also choose from a wide selection of vintages to make your gathering or dinner even more memorable. And when you order from the best Mississauga steakhouse, you can expect the best for your table.
Merlot, Cabernet, Pinot Noir…we didn’t cut corners with this list because we wanted those with even the most discerning tastes to find a bottle they love. For your takeout order, consider pairing a bottle of red with our burger, chicken wings, or tasty pizzas. Cheeseburgers are especially well-suited to Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon – widely known as the “people pleaser” of red wines.
Zinfandel, which falls on the sweeter end of the wine spectrum, pairs nicely with lighter meat dishes, such as chicken and veal. We recommend a bottle with our veal.
When serving your dinner guests, keep in mind that a lighter wine needs lighter food. White wines, widely known for their simple elegance, should be served chilled and with delicate pairings like fish and salads so as not to upset the palate balance. Here are some takeout suggestions to help you plan the perfect meal:
- Sauvignon blanc: grilled seafood
- Pinot grigio: pasta dishes with light sauces
- Riesling: chicken
- Chardonnay: salad
White wines are brighter than their red counterparts, with notes of floral or citrus, so feel free to mix and match any of the above suggestions. Whites also tend to go well with appetizers, especially those that include greens and/or seafood. You might therefore start your takeout dinner with a bottle of white and, depending on what you ordered as the main course, move onto a red.
Red continues to be the dominant shade in California: a region that has produced its own wine since the 1700s. Our selections include those from deep within Napa Valley, where vineyards contain volcanic soils that produce wines with entirely distinct flavours. For instance, the Joseph Phelps Vineyards Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon balances fresh red cherry with pomegranate and cranberry and offers a smooth, lingering finish.
Innovation and quality are just two of the words often used to describe Australian wine varieties. We have several Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz choices for your pleasure; Shiraz, in particular, is recognized as a favourite among Australians for its bold and often spicy profile. Its soft tannins pair beautifully with a variety of dishes, including veal and steak.

But our wine selection doesn’t stop there. We also have bottles from France, Italy, and Spain, just to name a few regions. Diversity is one of the hallmarks of a great wine list, and we put thought and consideration into ours. The Merlot from Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Two Sisters Vineyards, for example, represents the best of wines in that entire region, not just the estate on which it is made.
Make dinner an event, and an exciting one at that, by ordering wine from our extensive list. To place your food and drink takeout order, call Gabriel’s Restaurant, or visit our website for delivery options.
