In summer, winter or any season, here are the possible wine pairings with our delicious chorizo.

Chorizo ​​and wine: a love story

Made from pork, chorizo ​​is a cold meat from Spain seasoned with paprika. It is more exotic than simple sausage and can therefore be enjoyed in different ways. You can grill it and enjoy it like chipolata or sausage.

In summer, this spicy red sausage can be enjoyed as an aperitif by the pool with a delicious glass of wine in hand. Whether it is a white wine, a rosé or a red, it can easily accompany chorizo delicately spicy and sweet. The color of the chorizo ​​blends perfectly with the intense color of the wine, whether red or rosé. Between friends, family or lovers, it's the perfect combination to spend beautiful evenings.

Red wine with chorizo

Approved to a dish of risotto, pasta or paella, chorizo ​​can be accompanied by a good red wine. The perfect marriage of chorizo ​​and red wine is a taste experience that introduces you to the flavors of this sausage and the elegant taste of this drink. To fully appreciate this intense combination, choose a balanced and powerful red wine. You are therefore sure to have a good gourmet time alone or with your loved ones.

Chorizo ​​stands out from other sausages by its powerful, delicate and intense taste. You can therefore accompany it with a strong red wine like Ribera del Duero or Rioja. The latter, made from the Tempranillo grape variety, has a medium tannin structure and is very balanced. You can also opt for a Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Rhône valley which is just as intense and delicate. Its freshness and roundness make it a very good accompaniment to our chorizo ​​which reveals its fleshy texture and exceptional spicy notes.

Chorizo ​​accompanied by rosé wine

Rosé wines have the particularity of balancing the fatty side of chorizo and bringing out its delicious spicy flavors. Chorizo ​​goes well with rosé table wines such as a vintage from the Rhône valley or Languedoc. The latter are more tannic than an aperitif rosé which does not compete with the intense flavors of this charcuterie.

Chorizo-based dishes can also be accompanied by a rosé wine. The latter offers a touch of freshness and elegance to this sausage with rich flavors. Depending on your preferences, you can opt for a Côtes-de-Provence rosé. This region is famous for its distinguished and quality rosé wines. Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault are grape varieties that reveal their subtle aromas of fresh red fruits, aromatic herbs and citrus fruits. This marriage brings a touch of liveliness which creates a unique alliance with the spicy notes of chorizo.

TheSpanish rosé wine from Navarre, made with the Garnacha (Grenache) and Tempranillo grape varieties, is also a perfect choice to enjoy your chorizo ​​dishes. Its very balanced acidity and its floral and red fruit nuances will delicately and finesse enhance the richness of the chorizo.

The marriage of white wine and our chorizo

White wine is a delicious drink that is highly appreciated for its exceptional and elegant flavors. Its delicate aromas and freshness combine with finesse with chorizo ​​as an aperitif or main course. To have a good harmonization with this unique blend, choose a dry, full-bodied white wine. It will enhance the spicy notes of chorizo ​​and will amaze your taste buds.

Rioja Blanco Reserva wine from the province of La Rioja in Spain is a perfect choice to accompany chorizo. The latter is produced in accordance with a tradition dating back more than 60 years. Combined with this white wine, it reveals complex aromas of fruit, almonds, spice and subtle woody notes. This wine has a roundness on the palate which creates an elegant alliance with the tender texture of the spicy red sausage.

Whatever wine you choose to accompany your chorizo, you should consume it in moderation. Alcohol abuse is indeed dangerous for your health.
