Wine Pairing
Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

Rule for dessert + wine pairing: the wine should be sweeter or it will taste sour.

Pairing Suggestions

Madeira (Portugal)
Cabernet Franc Icewine (World)
Port (Portugal)
Sherry (Spain)
Vin Santo (Italy)


Pecan Pie is a pie of pecan nuts with a filling of eggs, butter, sugar, and syrup.

For perfect pairing we need something nutty, sweet, or fortified.

Madeira has a little "burnt" taste, and is sweet enough to pair with sugar and syrup. If you like your Pecan Pie with chocolate and added Bourbon, Madeira will still work.

A super sweet Ice Wine will also work. If the Pecan Pie is chocolate and Bourbon whiskey based, try a Canadian Ice Wine from red wine grapes like Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

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.

Food and Wine Pairing

Food and wine pairing is highly dependent on both the taste components in the food and the taste components in the wine.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
