Which wine with pork? Which pork with wine?

I understand that this section is one of the most popular on my web site. Thank you. I have added more information below. Considering that pork is a "white" meat you may be surprised that many people suggest pairing it with selected red wines. Whether you select your wine or your pork dish first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the pork and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage.

Choosing a Wine to Match Your Pork Dish

Why not serve the same pork-based meal twice and see whether you and your guests prefer the white or the red? Enjoy!
