Whether you’re settling in for a movie night or having one of those “treat yourself” days (or weeks, months…), it’s always a good idea to combine your favourite snacks with wine. There’s no better way to class up your junk food obsession than with the perfect wine pairings!
Here are some perfect wine pairings for the most popular (and delicious) junk foods:
Savoury Snacks Paired with Wine
Doritos & Cheetos Wine Pairings
Best Wine for Sweet Chili Heat Doritos:Off-Dry Riesling
You also can’t go wrong pairing these with a rosé, which goes with almost everything!
Potato Chips and Wine Pairings
Popcorn and Wine Pairings
Chips & Salsa and Wine Pairings
A Mexican fiesta on the couch with Tortilla Chips and Salsa? Go for a Dry Riesling, Pinot Grigio, or Sauvignon Blanc which will cut the spiciness of the salsa and hold up to the saltiness of the chips.
French Fries and Wine Pairings
Cheese Balls and Wine Pairings
Cheese Balls and Pinot Noir are a match made in heaven.
Sweet Treats Paired with Wine
Cookies and Wine Pairings
Feeling the Christmas cheer? Ginger cookies taste wicked with a racy Zinfandel.
Brownies and Wine Pairings
Dark rich brownies deserve a Merlot.
All Kinds of Pie and Wine Pairings
Apple pie and sweeter wines match well, so look for a fizzy Moscato d’Asti.
Cherry pie and Syrah are wonderful friends as the wine can stand up next to the big fruity flavours of the cherry.
The same goes for blueberry pie and a California Cabernet Sauvignon since the wine is bold enough for the fruit bomb pie.
Cheesecake and Wine Pairings
Cheesecake and Icewine are pretty much the epitome of decadence. Wow!
