Drink pairing

Drink pairing

Pairing wine with spicy sausages such as chorizo means going for wines that are fruity, aromatic and off-dry whites. They flow in great contrast with their stronger sense of sugar and manage to counterbalance any heat in a refreshing rush of sweetness. Look for white wines such as Moscato and Pinot grigio. For red wines, light is the way to go. Exclusively look for dry, acidic and crisp reds, such as Zinfandel or Barbera d'Asti.
