1. Pinot Noir
“Pinot noir can typically be paired with a wide range of foods,” making it a great can’t-miss pick for pizza, says chef Brian Streeter, culinary director at Napa Valley’s Cakebread Cellars. If you’re digging into a pizza with a tomato base and cured meats like salami or prosciutto, a quality pinot noir will complement the smokiness of the meat and “highlight the liveliness of the tomato sauce,” Streeter says. Quality pinot can be pricey, but Vina Leyda Las Brasas Pinot Noir from Chile ($19, wine.com) is a good, affordable pick. If you have the scratch or you’re hoping to impress, Cakebread Cellars Two Creeks Anderson Valley Pinot Noir ($43, cakebread.com) and Division Wine’s Pinot Noir Quatre ($45, divisionwineco.com) are knockouts.
