Pizza and wine, more than anything else in life, are two dependable sources of comfort that always come through when you need them the most. When you pair them right, things get really interesting. We've put up this helpful little list to help you choose the perfect match for your favorite doughy wonder.
Red Wines for Pizza
The Sonoma Zinfandel hits your lips with spice and sun-ripened blackberries, leaving a lasting impact. On the palate, it's bold and wonderfully textured, with notes of wild blueberries, plum, and black currants, as well as an intensity and purity of fruit. Structure and a long finish are provided by a little dusting of tannins, which are bolstered by fresh juicy acidity. You may want to pair this wine with pizzas that have meat products as toppings.
This wine is made entirely of Pinot noir grapes. Traditional winemaking with a 20-day maceration period. 18 months of malo fermentation and aging in medium oak barrels. The color is a deep ruby red. Cherry, spices, and smoky notes on the nose. It's lovely in the mouth, with a lot of concentration. Freshness and acidity are both good. Smooth and minerally, but not overly so. Mouthfeel with three dimensions. The finish is long-lasting, with a sweetish aftertaste and smoky undertones. A wine that can be paired with any type of pizza.
With cocoa, tobacco, and marzipan flavors, this Malbec-led combination has a rich, mature, and majestic scent. The palate is round, clean, and full-bodied, with blackberry, cassis, and chocolate notes that turn smokey, spicy, and peppery on the long and wonderfully crafted finish. Try it with cheese-only pizzas.
The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Fut de Chene is aged for 18 months in a combination of demi-muids and old barrels, although it is not oaky. Instead, the 65 percent Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, and 5% Counoise combination have appealing herbal-spice notes and luscious raspberries on the scent, followed by a creamy, supple tongue and a lengthy, spice-driven finish. Black fruits and herbs mingle with hints of sweetness. The wine is serious, strong, and intense. You choose the pizza and take the rest for Pape Fut de Chene.
Don Melchor 2017 is a wine that emphasizes the fruit expression and texture excellence obtained by the Don Melchor vineyard. With fine, delicate tannins that give the wine exceptional elegance and depth, distinct layers of aromas and flavors, very smooth, exquisite tannins, and a long, persistent finish, this vintage reveals a magnificent presence of red fruits and a clear expression of the Puente Alto Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine manages to achieve that one-of-a-kind sensation that only great wines and great harvests can produce. 91 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot make up the wine's composition. This wine would be perfect next to pepperoni pizza.
White Wines for Pizza
Passion fruit, lemon-lime, and snow pea notes are wrapped in a chalky texture with zippy acidity and a lengthy, acidic finish in Mohua Sauvignon Blanc. Bright, refreshing, and perfect for any cheese-only pizza.
This is a quintessential California Chardonnay, with crisp citrus, green apple, a hint of tropical fruit, and a touch of richness in the glass. This wine has good balance, a little minerality, and a lingering finish because it was grown beside the Russian River and fermented in 70 percent stainless steel and 30 percent French oak barrels. This is a lovely Chardonnay with a wonderful price tag. It is a great option for low-budget pairings.
La Crema Chardonnay has citrus, honeysuckle, and yellow plum flavors, as well as luscious tastes of nectarine, apricot, and pear. This wine from the 2018 vintage offers lively acidity and a silky finish. If you want to treat yourself to an amazing pleasure, try a glass of chilled La Crema Chardonnay. This wine is a good balancer for meaty pizzas.
This wine is typically made on slopeside, but the soil type varies depending on the region. The soils of the Côte-d'Or are whitish or light grey marls and marly limestones, which are deep and not very rocky. In contrast, the Yonne offers sloping calcareous grounds, sometimes chalky as in the Tonnerrois district or on Kimmeridgian limestone as in Chablis and the Auxerrois, whilst in the Chalonnais and Mâconnais, the fractured topography pushes up limestone, clay, and marl soils. Then there's a granitic component in the south of Saône-et-Loire. Cheese and veggie pizzas are the right partners for this wine.
The Two Terroirs Blanc is vinified cool and does not come into contact with wood. The juicy flavors of a siliceous plateau overlooking the Pyrenees are paired with the finesse of an excellent gravelly terroir. It's clean and sophisticated without the wood, crisp, fruity, and fresh. Good next to pepperoni or sausage pizza.
Also, Why Not Rose Wine With Pizza?
From the bottle to the contents, this wine is wonderful. The scent is layered with raspberry and strawberry jam, leading to a lovely, yet peppery palate. A lively wine with enough acidity for food pairing but enough roundness to be enjoyed on its own. This is the best wine for any event if you just have one bottle to bring. The color of the star is a brilliant pastel pink with specks of copper reflections. A distinctive blend of traditional Provençal red berries with notes of pine, cinnamon, and cookies. Syrah's spice characteristics give the wine a dry, white pepper flavor that lingers on the mouth. A touch of Rolle adds brightness and acidity, with aromas of winter citrus, spice, and a warming aftertaste. Try to have it with veggie pizzas.
RUMOR is a sophisticated premium rosé made and bottled in Flassans Sur Isole, in the heart of the Provence region of France. The vineyard, which is filled with woods and olive groves and spans over 850 hectares, has been producing the highest quality wine for over 800 years. RUMOR is an easy-drinking, high-quality rosé with a stunning blush pink color and a blend of refinement and lightness. It's a wonderful blend of subtle citrus and fruit scents with a crisp, dry finish. Any type of pizza would be a good pair for this gem.
Strawberry, raspberry, melon, citrus, and lemon flavors are all present in this rose. It's both intricate and delicate at the same time. It has a well-balanced acidity that some rosés lack. It's just stunning. It goes well with cheese-only pizzas.
