FLAVOR ANALYSIS

The basil in the Pesto enhances the grassy and vegetal notes Sauvignon Blanc is known for, while its cheese and garlic cut the acidic nature of Pinot Grigio, Albariño and unoaked Chardonnay creating a beautiful balance of flavor and texture.

When it comes to reds, varietals with spicy or peppery undertones, such as a Sangiovese or Zinfandel, accentuate the basil flavor in our Pesto Wine Snacks and draw out the extra virgin olive oil, leaving a smooth, pleasant aftertaste.

GASTRONOMY

Basil, the key ingredient in pesto, is part of the mint family. In addition to having sweet and spicy elements, it also contains anise-flavored molecular compounds. These same compounds can be found in some white grape varietals, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Albariño and unoaked Chardonnays. The existence of these compounds in both wine and herb create a pair by nature.
