Pulled pork (vinegar-based sauce) and wine pairing

Posted by dftaylor2211, Jul 6, 2010.

I'm hosting a backyard bbq this weekend where the menu will feature pulled pork with a vinegar-based sauce. I'm looking for both a red and white wine to serve. I'm more concerned that the red pair well with the food. For the white, I want something that'll be refreshing in this 100 degree heat but that won't clash with the pork for those who go that route. Any suggestions from the Snooth community?

Italian Malvasia white wines will do the pairing nice. Try it.

Vinegar is never an easy wine match. What else is in the sauce?

Off dry rose, something a bit gamy, maybe syrah or malbec based.

 

Easy to suggest than to find but that's what I would be looking for!

The suggestions are much appreciated. It's a tough pairing, but these recommendations are ones that I wouldn't have thought of. Grazie a tutti.

Italians will probably be a good bet.  Balsamic vinegar is big part of the cuisine!

- Valpolicella for the red (lightest Italian red) or Montepluciano d'Abruzzo

- Pinot Grigio from Veneto is obvious, but an interesting twist would be Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi

Hope this helps.

Why would pinot grigio be 'obvious'?
