Chardonnay (France)
White Rioja (Spain)
Soave Classico (Italy)

Other Excellent Alternatives

Champagne (France)
Cava (Spain)
Sekt (Germany)
Prosecco (Italy)


Chicken flesh and a creamy dressing will need a wine with a little bit of weight.

Look for a lightly oaked Chardonnay.

Too much oak will overpower the flavors of the salad.

Pairing Wine and Acid

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.

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.
