Pairing Weed and Wine: A Guide to Good Taste

Estimated 2-minute read

Any sommelier worth their salt knows the perfect complement to go with any good wine, and it's no different in the case of weed. It may sound odd, but there are actually some pairings that go well together, so if you are looking for a classy way to up your weed game or want to impress a crush with your knowledge of taste and flavor, look no further; that we have exactly what you are looking for.

Before we proceed, you should know that these pairings are meant to be tasted in moderation, in an environment to feel safe. Mixing weed and alcohol can be risky, so if you are interested in dabbling in wine pairings, do it little by little and in company of someone you trust. So, if you are ready, let’s start!


White wines: Ideal for mild flavors.

The flavor of white wines is more light, sweet, and subtle, so the pairings here have to compliment that. For example, a Sauvignon Blanc has a sort of fruity, tropical flavor, so choose something like Mango Haze. A Moscato needs a more citrus punch, like Agent Orange, Grapefruit, or Lemon Haze, and finally, the apple-flavored Riesling goes with the sour tang of Hollywood OG.

 

Red wines: For lovers of intense flavors.

Most red wines tend to have a deeper, more dry flavor with fruity notes in line with berries, spice, and even tobacco; depending on your preferred grape, different weed strains go really well.

For example, a good Amarone wine goes excellent with bitter flavors, so strains like Alien Dog or Sensi Star are the right choice. But a Pinot Noir, one of the more old and expensive varieties of red wine, with its red, juicy flavors, needs something like Strawberry Cough. And finally, if your choice is a Zinfandel, with a more subtle berry taste, it goes great with Strawberry Haze. 


Sparkling wines: A more festive choice.

And finally, a nice sparkling wine is kind of the wild care of weed pairings, so experimenting with flavor profiles could lead you to your perfect mix. A glass of sparkling wine is more creamy and less fruity, depending on the variety, so if you are feeling adventurous, try strains like White Rhino Indica and Green Crack Sativa with champagne.

So there you have it, be it for a classy date, for a special occasion you want to spice up with a nice, relaxing buzz; this is just the start of what the wonderful world of wine pairings can offer you. Enjoy!
