German Salami is fat and spicy. It pairs best with something fruity and light bodied.

Salt in food softens the acidity in wine. Go for high acidity.

Fat, spicy meat also loves citrus and acidity, but avoid grassy whites like Sauvignon Blanc. Go for bubbles.

Avoid oak. Oak tends to be too complex with spicy food.

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.
