Asparagus, Artichoke and Vinaigrette
If you know a few simple solutions, however, there’s no need to exclude them from dinner. Cool-climate wines with pronounced herbal flavors will counteract the compound in asparagus. Try a Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire or New Zealand. Serving asparagus with a Hollandaise or butter sauce will provide additional options, such as Chablis or unoaked Chardonnay.
Because of the tendency of artichokes to sweeten wine, you should pair them with a highly acidic wine with no oak and little to no tannin. White wines from Greece and Italian whites like Verdicchio and Vermentino have enough acid to withstand cynarin.
Vinaigrette vexation can be solved in two ways: by using more oil or a sweeter vinegar, like balsamic, to lower the acid level of the dressing or by choosing a wine with an acid level equal to your vinegar. Italian whites such as Orvieto, Soave and Frascati are excellent contenders.
