We preface all of our wine pairing suggestions by letting you know that it’s really a matter of personal taste. While we do offer our opinions and why we selected a specific varietal, there is no right or wrong answer when pairing a wine with your dinner.

White Zinfandel Wine

This Jamaican Jerk Chicken Recipe produces a lot of flavor that can take away from most wines. It packs a punch between the spice and the strong flavors from the allspice. While pairing a wine with Jerk Chicken can be a tough, I would gravitate towards a White Zinfandel. I like a chilled wine and the strawberry nuances of a White Zinfandel would pair well with the heat and the flavor of the chicken.
