Pecan pie is a favorite with Americans and all of here at American Winos. It is a staple at most people’s home for thanksgiving and Christmas. Pecan pie while great with milk is meant to be paired with the right wine.
If we were pairing raw salted pecans with wine we would recommend a light red such as Pinot Noir but pecan pie is a very sweet indulgence.
For pecan pie we recommend a dry white wine such as Chardonnay and pick one that has been aged in a oak barrel to give it a smoky taste to go along with the sweet in the pie.
I recommend one that we like from a previous tasting called Toasted Head from California.
This combination pairing of wine with Pecan Pie will make a great dessert into an unforgettable one.
