Pinot Noir & Pork Pairings

1 of 4

The allure of Pinot Noir and pork is more than alliterative.

They share a sweet succulence and smoky undertone. Bright in acidity, with medium tannins and a velvety texture, Pinot complements both pork’s lean and fatty cuts. Meanwhile, the wine’s subtle strawberry, cherry and raspberry notes play well with the other-white-meat’s favorite flavorings: the sweet, the savory and the tangy.

These two tablemates match each other so well, there’s a festival in Sonoma County devoted solely around celebrating this perfect union—aptly called Pigs & Pinot—where top chefs and sommeliers from around the world gather and try to one-up each other with pork-and-Pinot pairings.

To help you embrace this tasty wine-and-swine combination, we tapped three chefs from the upcoming festival to share their ultimate pork dish and its ideal partner.
