Bean Dip:

Excite your taste buds and pick up a bottle of red wine to pair with Yo Quiero’s Bean dips!  The pairing possibilities are endless with Yo Quiero’s bean dips!  Try pairing a lighter red wine (blend) from Portugal (like a red Dao) or Spain to pair with the spicy bean dip or a robust California Zinfandel.  The California Zinfandel will provide an excellent juicy round wine, baking spices, and notes of red licorice with good acidity for a perfectly paired finish.

Avocado Cream Cheese Jalapeño Popper Dip:

Make your way to the cold box and pick up a dry white wine to pair with Yo Quiero’s Avocado Cream Cheese Jalapeño Popper Dip or your own Jalapeño Poppers filled with Yo Quiero’s spread!  A Sauvignon Blanc from France with its cooling citrus, lemon, and gooseberry notes with a crisp finish will pair perfectly with Yo Quiero’s Avocado Cream Cheese Jalapeño Popper Dip!

Avocado Salsa:

Riesling in its many forms is what you want to reach for to pair with Yo Quiero’s Avocado Salsa!  Pickup a dry German Riesling for a light, crisp finish with hints of peach and candied lemons that leads to a savory mineral finish with Avocado Salsa! A sweeter Riesling with notes of honey and ginger still provides a nice bright, zippy finish to pair with Avocado Salsa!

Mashed Avocado:

A dry white wine like a Vinho Verde from Portugal or a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is an ideal wine to pair with Yo Quiero’s healthy mashed avocado!  The irresistible combination of the avocados’ saltiness and acidity with the refreshing and light notes of lemongrass and grapefruit from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is pure harmony.  Vinho Verde wines are less pronounced than Sauvignon Blanc with great white melon, lime citrus, and gooseberry notes!
