Recommended wine: Cava, Grenache, Shiraz

Cava, Grenache, and Shiraz are my top picks for Chili. These juicy reds don't have too much tannin (important for spicy foods), but a sparkling wine like cava can tame the heat even better. One wine you could try is Avinyo Cava Reserva. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 17 dollars.

Bright white fruits combine with toast notes. On the palate the wine is fresh and vibrant. Pairs with leeks, sausages, romesco, tomatoes, aïoli.
