Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling
Pork Chops works really well with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Riesling. Chardonnay suits simple chops or chops in a butter or cream sauce, dry riesling complements sweet additions like honey mustard or apples, and pinot noir is a safe bet for pork dishes in general. You could try Antica Chardonnay (Mountain Select). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 29 dollars per bottle.
