Take-Out Wine Pairings

The month of March brings us the long-awaited spring equinox and the highly anticipated spring break season. For many of us, “spring break” is a time to decompress through travel or a relaxing staycation. While you enjoy a break from school, work, or both, why not also take a break from the kitchen? Ordering take-out is an easy and delicious way to unburden yourself from the stress of cooking, and we have some perfect wine pairings for your to-go meals!

A bowl of Kung Pao Chicken with white rice in the background.

A wine with a hint of residual sugar can pair beautifully with Chinese take-out. So next time you order pork dumplings or Kung Pao chicken, try enjoying it with the Tribute Off-Dry RieslingArcturos Semi-Dry Riesling, or Arcturos Gewurztraminer. The pretty aromatics and touch of sweetness that these complex, white wines possess stand up well to the spicy and intense flavors of many Chinese dishes.

Fish Tacos Square 300x300 1

For your next Taco Tuesday take-out, consider reaching for a bright, crisp white like our Arcturos Sauvignon Blanc or a juicy red like our Artisan Red. The herbaceous and citrus notes in Sauvignon Blanc pair nicely with fish tacos, while the fruity, slightly sweet characteristics of our Artisan Red balance perfectly with a spice-laden pork taco.

Buffalo Wings Square 300x300 1

When it comes to classic American take-out, we think buffalo wings and burgers. The sweetness of our Arcturos Late Harvest Riesling is perfect for taming the fiery heat of buffalo wings, and the wine’s acidity cuts nicely through the ranch or blue cheese dipping sauce. While burgers and beer are a classic combo, we like pairing ours with our crisp Hard Apple Cider. The bright apple flavors and carbonation keep your palate light and primed for every juicy bite.

White pizza topped with arugula.

This wouldn’t be a proper list of take-out without pizza! For pepperoni lovers, you need a red wine that can stand up to the spices of this much-loved topping. Our Red House Red is the perfect pairing as it possesses just the right amount of fruit-forward intensity and mild tannins to meld with this classic pizza. For fans of white pizza, reach for a bottle of our Arcturos Sur Lie Chardonnay. This unoaked Chardonnay’s lively acidity and clean finish will cut through the creaminess of a white sauce and complement the green herbs that often top this rich pie.
