Great Wines for Cinco de Mayo!


Looking for something a little different for this year's Cinco de Mayo celebration? Do you want a great wine for your festive feast before ending the night with margaritas and tequila shots?

Well, pairing wines with spicy foods and diverse flavors can be tough but the Grape Girls have got you covered!
Here are our suggestions for great wines that will pair nicely with your Mexican meal:


Whites
Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Viognier

Reds
Beaujolais, Grenache, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir

The above wines can handle a wide range of flavors, from sweet and salty to sour and spicy, but don't go loco when trying to decide on the perfect pairing. Cinco de Mayo is all about mixing it up, trying new things and having FUN!
