October is National Pizza Month and there are few foods that are quite as popular as this tasty dish. It is common to find pizza being ate at lunch and dinner; and has even found its way to the breakfast table in some homes. Pizza can be eaten on the couch or even be served at a candlelit dinner with a fine glass of wine.
So why not raise a glass of vino and have a slice in honor of the special month, but just what wine should you pare with one of the most popular foods in the country? While pizza is so versatile that many wines will pare nicely with its flavors, one combination that wine lovers have to try is pizza with Sauvignon Blanc.
The tomato and cheese that is at the heart of every pizza is what makes this wine and food combination work so well no matter what other toppings are on top. The fruity herbal flavors in Sauvignon Blanc enhance the same herbal flavors in the pizza sauce while the acid helps to foil the richness in the cheese blend used.
It seems there is no better way to celebrate National Pizza Month than to raise those Sauvignon Blanc Wine glasses and toast one of America’s favorite foods.
