Everyone loves Pizza and everyone loves Rose, so naturally it’s a no brainer that the perfect combination brings together these two, much loved favourites.

Whether your slice of choice is a Margherita or you’re more partial to a vegetarian based pizza these are two great options that really compliment the flavours of a dry Rose. Packed with tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, spinach and goats cheese we have the perfect pizza for your favourite Rose. 

Margherita Pizza

With the classic and simple flavours of creamy mozzarella, alluring basil and a touch of tangy tomato, the margherita makes foir the perfect meal for light to medium bodied wines. The zesty and easy drinking flavours of the Rose and Pinot Gris are enough to highten the pizzas flavours without overpowering your favourite indulgence.

Pair with: Rosé and Pinot Gris


BBQ Chicken Pizza

If you're anything like us, your favourite BBQ flavoured pizza is going to have lashings of delicious BBQ sauce. Luckily we have the perfect wine to compliment the smokey sweetness of the BBQ sauce. A Rose or a Pinot Noir have a fruitiness that goes well with this pizza and its light body and fine tannis will go well with any chicken.

Pair with: Rose, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Chardonnay


Vegetarian Pizza

If you like your vegetables where you can see them on a pizza, think about a wine that’s not going to compete with the mix of components going on in a Vegetarian pizza. An unoaked Chardonnay is a good place to start. With its gentle notes of citrus and herbs, it complements the similar flavours of the vegetables perfectly.

Pizzas are often our gu8ilty pleasure but there is no doubt you can make a healthier alternative with a vegetarian topping. If youre going for an array of vegetable delights then you are going to need a wine that will compliment rather than compete with your toppings. A Rose or an unoaked Chardonnay is the best palce to start. Notes of fruit, citrus and herbs go perfectly with your vegetables of choice.

Pair with: Rose, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc

 When it comes to pizza it is pretty hard to go wrong. However, we like to take the advice of Wine Selector panelist Adam Walls who tells us  “When it comes to pizza, I stick to the old theory of what grows together, goes together. Most Italian-style wines are all going to be good options with pizza.”
