Pork Schnitzel & Wine Pairing

Classic German and Austrian white wines like Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Gewürztraminer are our top picks for Pork Schnitzel, but Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc are at home with this breaded pork cutlet.  As for red wine, a fruity Pinot Noir (or Blauburgunder as it's known in Austria) or a Beaujolais are delicious with Schnitzel.

Pork Tenderloin & Wine Pairing

Pork Tenderloin is the most subtle portion of the pig, in that the flavours are not strong, nor do they have the porky essence that bacon or pork chops have.  White wines with a touch of juiciness, such as Riesling, Chardonnay, or Pinot Blanc, work fantastic.  For reds, you want plush and juicy red [...]

Pork Chops & Wine Pairing

Nothing is better than a thick juicy pork chop on your dinner plate, except of course a glass of wine or beer to accompany it. Since pork chops are a neutral meat, we highly recommend wines that elevate the dish further, which are Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Torrontés, Altbier (Beer) and Chardonnay. For this pairing [...]
