7 Unusual Wines for Pork

Pair your pork with these divine wines

2010 Sawtooth Skyline Red Snake River Valley Idaho 14%

Talk about your oddball wines. It’s tough to find the right peer group to taste a Cabernet-based blend from Idaho with, but this was my chance. It’s a bit of a rustic wine, tannic yet fruity and quite varietally correct, but certainly like-able. To pair well, it’s going to need an assertive dish, something a bit rustic itself with flavors that can tame the dry wood tannins. Grilling is a good route to go and coating nice, meaty pork chops with a dry rub of smoked paprika, cumin and oregano, with a shot of coffee thrown in for good measure, would make this wine sing. Oh, and by the way, Idaho?

  • Beaujolais villages, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, egs Chinon, Saumur Rouge, Saumur Champigny will go with pork, as well as warmer weather and a little chilling in the fridge
    If you like white try alsace varieties or dry German riesling, off dry rielsings and alsace types if it is spicy/chinese/thai/malaysian etc with your pork.
