A Fine Wine and Pizza Pairing

Wine and pizza or is it pizza and wine

Which wine with pizza? Which pizza with wine?

For me, a pizza is just not a pizza without a glass of wine. The pizza complements the wine and the wine complements the pizza, especially if you have selected the right pairings.

Choosing a Wine to Match Your Pizza

Are you lucky enough to remember straw-covered Chianti bottles in inexpensive Italian restaurants?... If you look hard enough you may be able to locate straw-covered Chianti wine bottles, and I'm not talking about lamps. If you haven't tasted Chianti in a while try it with one of the dishes recommended below. Whether you're eating out or at home, don't be afraid to experiment with the toppings, and with the wine. Whether you select your wine or your pizza first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the pizza and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.
