Chicken Wings and MO Wine

National Chicken Wing Day is celebrated on July 29th, but wings are a favorite for many year-round. Why not match up this delicious dish with a local wine for a winning flavor combo? There are countless styles and recipes for wings, but when selecting a wine to pair, keep in mind the sauce and spice level. Sweet cuts heat. So, if you like spicy wings, put out the fire with a slightly sweeter Missouri wine. Match up or complement the most dominant flavor of the sauce with the flavors and aromas of the wine. 

We’ve made some pairing suggestions for nine classic types of wings to get you started on your wings and wine adventure.

  • Classic Buffalo + Vignoles
  • Savory BBQ + Chambourcin
  • Spicy BBQ + Catawba
  • Garlic Parmesan + Chardonel
  • Caribbean Jerk + Traminette
  • Teriyaki + Vidal Blanc
  • Lemon Pepper + Seyval Blanc
  • Honey Mustard + Traminette
  • Chipotle + Vignoles 

Mix and match to find your favorite wings and wine combo. Cheers!
