Wine Pairing: Sweet Wine with Chips and Salsa

30 Jul
2012

We’re fans of Champagne and potato chips. They’re great together. Champagne and popcorn is good too, but we really like the chips (“crisps” for our British readers).

This duo is just as good. Got a bottle of sweet wine but don’t want to wait until dessert to drink it? Grab some chips and salsa.

Here’s why it works: the sweetness of the wine takes the edge off both the saltiness of the tortilla chips and the spiciness of the salsa. It’s a great match. Try it. The backdrop of Olympic National Park is optional.

    I love sweet wine with Thai food for the same reason.
