Alsatian Gewurztraminer Wine and Nachos

by Julie
(Attenschwiller, Alsace, France)

I know this is probably blasphemous to some people, but the other day I was served a lovely Gewurztraminer from Alsace (Rolly Gassman 1987) as an "aperitif" (before dinner drink).

And there were some nacho flavored tortilla chips on the table which is no surprise because most everyone in Alsace serves some snack foods with the before dinner drink.

I wasn't even thinking about it and I took a sip of wine and grabbed a chip.

Now this was a really nice Gewurztraminer so it didn't need anything to accompany it.

It could stand on it's own, but I'm telling you that the combo of nacho flavoring with this Gewurztraminer was REALLY nice!

I suppose this may not be for everyone but I'd be curious to see if anyone else likes this food and wine combination.

Sounds Interesting

Hi Julie,

That does sound interesting!

I'll have to try that sometime...

Gewurztraminer is supposed to pair well with strongly flavored foods, but I've never tried it with anything nacho flavored.

That could be a very practical aperitif since almost everyone serves chips and "nacho" flavor seems to be everyone's favorite around here (or at least the people I know).

Thanks for the suggestion!
