If you are in Italy, Beer is often the first choice for Pizza, but I suggest you test a local sparkling wine instead.

My favorite match for Pizza is chilled Lambrusco. The fresh acidity pairs so well with Cheese and Tomatoes.

Pizza and Prosecco is a gastronomic match made in heaven, and the carbonation helps my digestion.

Any Metodo Classico wines (Champagne) will match the acidic Pizza and cut through its Richness, and the lees of Metodo Classico and the Pizza crust share the same tasting notes.

For a Pizza with more Meat, a fruity Italian red wine is always a good choice.

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.
