Chorizo is a spicy Spanish Salami flavored with garlic, red pepper, and sometimes smoked. It pairs best with red wines with ripe fruit.

Salt in food softens the acidity in wine. Go for high acidity.

Fat, spicy meat also loves citrus and acidity, but avoid grassy whites like Sauvignon Blanc.

Go for bubbles.

Oaked wines tend to heighten the chilli heat.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.
