What Wine Goes with Pizza

Published by at 6:14 pm under Red Wine,Serving Wine,Wine and Food

With pizza being one of the most popular foods in the United States, you are going to want to know what wine goes with pizza. If you haven’t thought about pairing wine with pizza yet, then you are in for a treat because it can actually be quite fun if you match up the vino correctly.

With tomato sauce being quite heavy, it is best to match it with a heavy red wine.

Some of the most popular wines to pair with pizza are:

* Cabernet Sauvignon
* Cabernet Franc
* Merlot
* Chianti
* Rioja

Depending on the type of pizza, the wine pairing can differ.

Zinfandel is a great to try if you are eating pepperoni pizza. This vino is a red wine with a hint of blackberry taste.

If you like Hawaiian style pizza (ham & pineapple), then you should try a Riesling. This vino has peach and citrus flavors to it which pair great with the pineapple and ham on the pizza.

If you like to stick with a simple cheese pizza, then you’ll like a Barbera wine. This option has tasty flavors of red fruits and black cherry and pairs with cheese pizza very well.
