You've heard of mimosas at breakfast, but what about wine? If champagne before noon is acceptable, then why shouldn't wine be? We're not telling you to polish a bottle of wine off for breakfast (but hey - who are we to stop you) but pairing breakfast food and a glass of wine isn't such a crazy idea. In fact, there are some pretty delicious breakfast wine combos out there. Sit back, pop open a bottle of wine, and let's dive into some breakfast wine options.
Sweet breakfasts and wine pairings
If you're a person who likes a sweet breakfast, then this list is for you. From pancakes to cinnamon rolls, we've got you covered for whatever your tastebuds are craving.
1. Blueberry Pancakes & Muscat
Delicious blueberry pancakes pair excellent with a sweet, bubbly wine like Moscato. There's nothing like waking up to the smell of fresh pancakes, and Moscato is the perfect accompaniment. Moscato wine is a sweet, fizzy white or Rosé wine that will compliment each bite.
French Toast & Riesling
Nothing says good morning like a thick cut slice of french toast drizzled with syrup and powdered sugar. If you're really feeling like a master chef, fry up some crispy bacon and eggs to serve along side of it. Riesling pairs well with the sweetness of the syrup and will refresh your palate so you'll taste every delectable bite.
Cinnamon Roll & Sauternes
Imagine a cinnamon roll straight out of the oven, steaming with sweet goodness and dripping in icy white frosting. Now imagine pairing it with a sweet glass of wine that boasts flavors of honey, ginger, and spice. Are you in heaven yet?
Strawberry Crepes & Sparkling Rosé
Light and delicate crepes filled with ricotta cheese and strawberries goes perfectly with a slightly sweet sparkling rosé. Try a bottle of Barefoot Bubbly Pink Moscato, Louis Bouillot Perle d'Aurore Brut Rose, or Armani Sparkling Rose for the ultimate breakfast.
Savory breakfasts and wine pairings
- Veggie Frittata & Breakfast Sangria
A perfect veggie frittata is bursting with colors and flavor. Don't be afraid to add in too many veggies, that's what makes it so delicious! This creamy, salty breakfast pairs perfectly with a slightly sweet red breakfast sangria. You can make your own breakfast sangria by mixing two parts sweet red wine with one part orange juice.
Eggs Benedict & Prosecco
This is the ultimate combo. Eggs Benedict is the perfect breakfast of poached eggs stacked on top of Canadian bacon and a toasted english muffin. Top it with warm hollandaise sauce and you've got yourself love on-a-plate. Pair this savory breakfast with a slightly sweet bubbly wine like Prosecco, and you can officially call yourself a professional brunch-er.
Avocado Toast & Sauvignon Blanc
The dream breakfast of every Instagram influencer. Not only is avocado toast totally photogenic, but it's also packed with nutrients. Avocado is high in vitamin k, vitamin c, potassium, and more. Grab a thick slice of crunchy bread, mash some avocado, top it with a sprinkle of sea salt, and if you're feeling extra spicy, add a poached egg and some slices of prosciutto. This breakfast pairs perfectly with a glass of zesty sauvignon blanc because it cuts through the richness of the creamy avocado. This white wine and avocado toast pairing is the ultimate flavor indulgence.
