Buying Guide

If you have ever been unsure what to pick when walking down the wine aisle, we hear you. Whether you simply reach for your old favorite out of habit and would like to broaden your horizons a little, or you are wondering what goes best with a certain type of food, there’s a wine out there for you. In our alcohol buying guide, we share more with you about the different types of wine, regardless of whether you prefer white, red, or are looking to try a little bit of everything.

White Wine

  • Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc has a taste of sour fruits, giving it an acidic bite. It is lighter-bodied than chardonnay and is best paired with cheeses, pork, and roasted fish.

  • Chardonnay

Chardonnay is full-bodied and not sweet, making it a versatile choice that goes well with soft cheeses and platter.

  • Pinot Grigio

Pinot grigio is easy to drink, coming with a low acidity level and a sweet fruity taste. Whether you wish to drink it on its own or mix it into a sangria, pinot grigio can be enjoyed with mild cheeses and salads.

  • Riesling

A crisp and citrusy wine, Riesling is known for its high acidity and goes well with Japanese food such as tuna and sashimi.

Red Wine

  • Merlot

If you are new to wines, merlot is the place to start as it is light, fruity, and low in acidity. It goes well with classic dishes such as spaghetti and roasted chicken.

  • Pinot Noir

Pinot noir is known to be one of the most refreshing wines, but the taste can differ based on the grower, which is where you will want to experiment and decide on what you like best. Low on tannin, it is bright and dry, going well with grilled chicken and salmon.

  • Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a popular choice for summer drinking because of its low tannin and acid content alongside its strong berry flavor. Perfect for enjoying next to the grill on a summer’s night!

  • Shiraz

Shiraz, also known as syrah, is a full-bodied wine with a peppery aroma and is a great choice for drinking on cold days. Shiraz goes well with red meats, including venison, steak, and lamb.

  • Malbec

Similar to shiraz, malbec has a fruity taste and is best paired with pork or lamb chops. However, it is more suitable for easy, casual drinking than shiraz.
