Recommended wine: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, 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. The Hahn Winery Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 17 dollars per bottle.
