Whether it’s a Netflix and chill night or a pizza night out; pair these wines with your favourite pizza toppings to bring out the full flavours and delight your palate.

Pepperoni

To balance out the strong spice of pepperoni, choose wine with rich, fruity flavours. Its savoury qualities will cut through the pepperoni’s fat and saltiness, providing the perfect moreish match. 

Pair with: Sangiovese or Barbera, Nero d’Avola, Nebbiolo.

Vegetarian 

If you like your vegetables where you can see them on a pizza, think of wine with gentle notes that’s not going to compete with the ingredients on a vegetarian pizza. 

Pair with: Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, Prosecco, Fiano, Rosé.

Meat

Whether it’s a meat lover’s pizza or chicken; go with full-bodied reds with rich fruity flavours that are up to the task and can perfectly match the fattiness of the meat for an undeniable flavour combination.

Pair with: Cabernet Sauvignon or Tempranillo, Shiraz, Malbec.

BBQ 

The smokiness and sweetness of the barbeque sauce will pair perfectly with the fruitiness of a Pinot Noir. Its light body and fine tannins will work beautifully with the chicken, without overpowering it.

Pair with: Pinot Noir, or Dolcetto, Merlot, Chardonnay, Rosé.

Mushrooms

There’s no better pairing than Pinot and mushrooms—they’re all about earth and spice. A little oregano makes the match even better.

Cheese

Whether it’s a classic Margherita or a pizza with even more cheese, try a dry rosé which is perfect for lighter flavored pizzas, or a light aromatic red like pinot noir which is just acidic enough to cut through the tomato sauce and thin layer of oil from melted cheese

Pair with: rosé and pinot noir
