Recommended wine: Gruener Veltliner, Riesling, Sparkling Rose

Indian works really well with Gruener Veltliner, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé. The best wine for Indian food will depending on the dish, of course, but these picks can be served chilled and have some sweetness to complement the spiciness and complex flavors of a wide variety of traditional dishes. You could try Pratsch Organic Gruner Veltliner (1 Liter). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 14 dollars per bottle.
