Why is it tricky to pair wine with artichokes and what do I like best with them? Artichokes can come off being a little woodsy. I think ultimately as long as you get that fresh squeeze of lemon or you have that wonderfully rich aioli Then, you know, then you've got a real opportunity to, you know, yen or yang. And personally I think that wine is Chardonnay.
