Wine Pairing :

  • gruener veltliner
  • riesling
  • sparkling rose

Gruener Veltliner, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Biryani. The best wine for Indian food will depending on the dish, of course, but these picks can be served chilled and have some sweetness to complement the spiciness and complex flavors of a wide variety of traditional dishes.
