Pasta Pesto

What to drink with... Pasta Pesto.

Whatever the shape of pasta you choose, it’s the sauce that counts when you pairing wine. Pesto comes from Genoa in Liguria, Italy and is made up of basil, pine nuts, garlic, salt, Parmesan and Pecorino cheeses all blended with olive oil. A smooth red such as our Chianti or Pinotage will complement the herbiness of this dish. A white with herbaceous notes will also pair well. Try a Sauvignon Blanc, Gavi or Grenache Blanc. Alternatively our fab Italian blend of Friulano, Gewürz, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc would work too – the intense aromas and fruitiness of this wine will tone down the basil.
