How To: Pair wine with a spicy meal

Look for low alcohol wines.

Having spicy food for dinner? Pick a low alcohol (12.5% or lower) wine for the perfect pairing. Low alcohol wines are easy to drink, allowing you and your guests to drink more in order to ease the burn. And don’t forget to chill your wine before serving, making your glass exactly what you need in order to quench your thirst!
