Looking for some wines to have with your tacos at Winetopia?

In general, if you're having tacos stick with zippy, acidic wines - and if they're spicy - add a touch of sweetness. Slightly sweet, low-alcohol wines are the best option when enjoying any spicy food. 

Pork tacos pair well with a fruit-forward red wine or Pinot Noir.

Chicken tacos work with light, acidic white wines or a light, fruity Pinot Noir.

Try a light, zesty white with a hint of saline with your fish tacos - a Sauvignon Blanc would be a great choice. If you're enjoying crunchy, fried fish tacos, pair them with a bone dry white. 

Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect go-to pairing for all seafood, as it's light, crisp, and heavy on acidity. The hint of lemon, along with the  acidity make it especially good sipping alongside raw oysters.

When choosing a wine to pair with cheese,  a winning combination will always be a Rosé. With their light fruitiness and acidity,  they work particularly well with young and fresh cheeses. If you're opting for a more intense cheese, it could easily overpower the Rosé. In this case, try a wine with similar bold traits, such as a Cabernet Sauvignon.

The richness of Ethiopian dishes require a wine just as voluptuous to match. Try a deep, rich Syrah with Ethiopian food, they will marry nicely together.
