Wine match for fresh tomatoes is easy: rosé, crispy white and sparkling.
Tomatoes are packed with acid. This is the pairing challenge. If you pair fresh tomatoes with a low acid wine, the wine will feel flat.
Acidic, mouth watering wines pair well with tomatoes. We like Greco di Tufo and Falanghina because they are from the same region of Campania in Southern Italy where mozzarella is from .
Pairing wine with salads can be a challenge.
Salad dressings are mostly vinegar-based with high acidity.
Always remember to pair Acidity with Acidity.
Low acidity wines will drown in the salad. Avoid them.
Tannic reds will taste sour next to anything bright and acidic. Avoid them.
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.
