Delicious Carbonara Ingredients are bacon, Pecorino Romano or Parmiggiano Reggiano Cheese, egg and pepper mix.

Some add a drop of heavy cream.

We prefer white wines to enhance the delicious ingredients.

The best match is a dry, fresh white, not too acidic or savoury, able to balance the sweetness of the egg and the fat of cheese and bacon.

If you use cream, then a oak aged Chardonnay is a perfect pair.

In the mood for bubbles: try a Blanc de Blanc.

In the mood for red: a smooth and warm Merlot or Cerasuolo d' Abruzzo pairs well with bacon.

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.
