Recommended wine: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Sparkling Rose
Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are great choices for Mexican. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The Alexana Revana Vineyard Pinot Noir with a 4.7 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 42 dollars per bottle.
