1872. If you love food trucks, that’s a year you want to remember. A Providence vendor parked a covered wagon with pre-cut windows in front of a newspaper office and sold coffee, cold sandwiches, and pies to the press. Today, lines stretch as far as the eye can see for mouth-watering delights, from traditional fare to Korean BBQ, fish tacos, and tandoori chicken. There is something for everyone. The question is: what wine pairs with food trucks?
Pour a glass of your favorite Pinot Noir and start salivating over unique food truck offerings. Today’s trucks offer a global culinary menu, and complex, elegant Noir pairs perfectly with dishes ranging from eggplant and lamb and vegan enchiladas to green curries and gourmet pizzas with toppings such as arugula and mushroom. If your dish contains duck, goose, or chicken, Pinot Noir is a nice accompaniment as well.
If Pinot Gris is your go-to pour, the world is your oyster. And, yes, even oysters pair well with versatile. Find a food truck that serves BBQ, pork, chicken, hot and sour soup, fried and broiled seafood, veggie burgers, chili lime chicken kabobs… In other words, if you’re in doubt when it comes to pairing your food truck score with wine, go with bone-dry, fresh Rainstorm Pinot Gris. It will work for you. It’ll elevate even that hot pretzel with mustard into a culinary masterpiece!
Bright, refreshing, and light Pinot Rose has notes of strawberry, pomegranate, and rose petals. Its refreshing acidity makes it a great complement to a variety of food truck offerings. Try it with your hot sausage grinder, turkey sandwich, fried fish and chips, and pizza. Rose can be as versatile as Pinot Gris. If your local food truck drives up Greek, Mexican, Thai, or Indian, this Pinot Rose should definitely be in your wine rack.
Food trucks and wine: it is a perfect pairing in itself! Choose your favorite dish and pour a glass of refreshing Rainstorm wine to make it complete.
