WHAT WINE GOES WITH PORK?
WINES THAT GO WITH PORK!
Pork, considered “the other white meat”, is a delicate and delicious medium for flavor. Similar to chicken, pork can take on spices and sauces with charm and grace, never over-powering, but complementing. Most wine goes with pork.
So either a white or red wine will go with pork, depending on the preparation, spices, and your mood. Here are some recommendations, but I would suggest mixing it up. While these may serve, the variables beg for exploration.
MOST WINE GOES WITH PORK.
For instance, if you prepare a Pork Tenderloin with a Moroccan or Indian Curry rub, the dish will be screaming for a Dry Gewurztraminer or Riesling. But if you prepare the same cut marinated overnight in a fruit and mustard marinade, then grilled, Pinot noir will be the perfect complement. So wine and pork are absolutely well suited, but it will always be up to your tastes. Experiment for yourself what wine goes with pork.
