A Burrito needs a fresh and crispy red wine with good acidity.

Stay away from rough tannins.

Fruity Red wines with high acidity include Spanish Tempranillo wines and Italian Sangiovese wines.

A Pinot Noir or Gamay will also do the job.

If you want to drink white, choose a wine with fresh fruit and good acidity.

Riesling Spätlese is excellent with Mexican food.

Pinot Gris and Gewürztraminer from Alsace (France) can also work well, if there is a little residual sugar.

If you go for Rosé, go for something strong. American Syrah Rosé is typically made with the "Saignée Method", making the wine darker, richer, and bolder, compared to other Rosés.
