Bratwurst is a type of fresh sausage from Germany. The recipes are different in every region, but it is typically made with pork and veal, and seasoned with spices like garlic, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cumin or coriander.

You need strong acidity to match the strong acidity of vinegar used in the mustard, ketchup and sauerkraut. Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Friulano are crispy (it means acidic) and they match both the condiments and the meat.

The red wine to match Bratwurst should also be acidic: Zinfandel and Primitivo are acidic and work magically with BBQ.

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.
