Red Sauce

Tomatoes are a highly acidic food that require a tart medium-bodied wine. If you add red meats, you should move up in to a fuller-bodied wine.

  • Zinfandel – Ink Monster
  • Chianti – Tinaio Riserva
  • Montepulciano – Cortenova
 

White Sauce

Cream sauces can be paired with lots of different options. Like with other meals, keep in mind what kind of sauce. Is it peppery? Try a Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz. Is it cheesy? Try a medium-bodied red like a pinot noir. Is it a yoghurt sauce? Try a rose.

  • Shiraz – Layer Cake
  • Pinot Noir – Landscape
  • Rose – Real d'Or

Oil-Based Sauce

Herbaceous wines are the best choice for oil-based sauces. For these types of sauces, it is best to compliment the sauce by choosing something similar, rather than opposite.

  • Riesling – Chateau Ste. Michelle Dry
  • Pinot Grigio – Ornato
  • Gavi – Fiore Della Vita
