Wiener Sausages are typically smoked and cured.

You need acidity to match the acidity of the ketchup and the vinegar used in the mustard.

Best choice is a fruity red like Beaujolais.

Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Friulano are crispy (acidic) and they match both the condiments and the meat.

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.
