Types of Wine: Pinot Noir

So versatile, Pinot Noir is great with poultry, salmon, and meat dishes.

Recipes to Pair with Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is an often elegant wine that tastes of red fruits like cherries, raspberries, and strawberries. With time, Pinot might develop earthy aspects like mushrooms and decaying leaves (in a good way).

Try Pinot with chicken, lamb, roast pork loin, duck, and veal.
