Pizza Vino: Wine That Goes With Pie

Pizza & WineWe'll admit it...we don't cover a lot of wine on this site. It probably has something to do with the fact that we've always felt that wine comes in two flavors - red and white. We're overwhelmed with trying to choose wine for other people, and don't even get us started about trying to pair wine with food...looking at a wine list usually leaves us in a fetal position under the table.

That's part of why, in our minds, there's nothing that goes with a slice of pizza like a cold beer. But at the same time, we can see the allure of having a glass of wine with your slice. There's something about the way the flavors of the grape mingle with pizza flavors on your tongue that makes us say "viva Italia.” That’s why we're interested in Pizza Vino...they idiot-proof the pairing, because their wine is designed to go with pizza. And we need all the idiot-proofing we can get.

Made specifically for the pizza afficionado, Pizza Vino is a new California wine formulated to accompany pizza.

Available in Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, Pizza Vino is blended to be "fruit forward" without being masked by a strong oak presence, making it a perfect compliment to tomatoey pepperoni cheese pies.

The label features a pepperoni pizza and a red & white checker pattern reminiscent of an italian pizzeria.

Pizza Vino costs $8.99 per bottle, and is available at PizzaVino.com.
