Wine Pairing
Mole Poblano Sauce


Mole Poblano is one of the most popular Mexican Sauces.

Best Wine Pairing

Young Syrah / Shiraz (World)

Other Excellent Choices

Malbec (Argentina)
Zinfandel (USA)
Primitivo (Italy)


Mole Poblano is a nutty, spicy sauce containing chili peppers, tomatoes, dried fruit, seeds and chocolate.

Mole Poblano comes with chicken, pork or beef.

With such strong flavors, the wine risks being drowned, that't why the choice is a robust red wine.

For this dish you need to mind your tannins (medium is ok) and go for something both fruity and fleshy.

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.
