Which wine with pork? Which pork with wine?
I understand that this section is one of the most popular on my web site. Thank you. I have added more information below. Considering that pork is a "white" meat you may be surprised that many people suggest pairing it with selected red wines. Whether you select your wine or your pork dish first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the pork and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.
Why not serve the same pork-based meal twice and see whether you and your guests prefer the white or the red? Enjoy!The following table presents food and wine pairing information, sorted by pork dish. When you click on any pork dish a new page pops up telling you more about that dish and providing additional wine suggestions.
