What wine should you pair with your favourite slice?
Who doesn't love pizza? Thick or thin, cheese, sauce and all of those toppings! So many different varieties, you could eat a different combination every day and never get bored.
But with so much variety in pizza, there also is a ton of different wines you can pair with that slice. How to choose the right wine for pizza night?
Most people choose pizza with a tomato sauce. A red wine with similar acid levels to those in the tomato sauce will help the wine feel balanced and fuller in body. If you like spicy Italian sausage or pepperoni on your pizza, go for a stronger flavoured red, like a Sangiovese or Grenache Syrah Mourvèdre.
If you are one of those who enjoy a white sauce on your pizza, think Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio! Great with a chicken topped slice.
Vegetarian pizza - try a Sauvignon Blanc which goes great with spinach or arugula.
And, if you are like me and thinks pineapple DOES belong on pizza... try a Riesling.
For the past 7 years we've had an annual Country Fruit Wine sale every February. Unfortunately with the economy as it is, and costs that won't stop climbing upwards, we have had to make the tough decision to increase our production fees later this month.
So, in lieu of our annual sale, we are giving our customers the chance to come in and get their wine made at today's prices, before the price increase happens on February 15th. This increase will affect our production fees for country fruit wines, ciders, kit wines, beers and our cork and cap fees.
If you are thinking of making wine for that summer wedding, maybe cleaning out the freezer or even just wanted to try it for the first time, DO IT NOW!
We invite you to call the shop to set up your appointment as soon as possible.
