Look, we get it. Browsing Wine Library can actually be kind of daunting. Hundreds of grapes, regions, and styles, to choose from, and maybe 20 that you've actually tried. But everybody loves fruit, and everybody has their favorites. So we got together in a room with a bunch of fruit and a bunch of wine, and figured out what wine best suits your palate depending on your favorite fruit. So give these a whirl. Hopefully, you find something new!

 

Apples = Chardonnay

Classic, but often obscured by oak. We like a fruit-forward Chard like the Bello.

Peaches = Pinot Grigio

Like Georgia in a bottle.

Pears = Champagne

Champagne is white fruit taken to the next level with more yeast, more sugar, and more bubbles.

Blackberry = Bordeaux

Get into the brambles with us. You won't regret it.

Blueberry = Rhone Blend

Dark, brooding, and intense. 

Raspberry = Argentinian Malbec

Juicy, fruity, delicious. What more could you want from life?

Cherry = Pinot Noir

Maybe the most classic fruit association in the entire wine world.

Strawberry = Rosé

Good rosé should be like rolling around in a strawberry patch.

Honeydew = Chenin Blanc

Don't sleep on Chenin Blanc. An overlooked grape with surprising nuance.

Lemon = Sancerre

A tart treat for a seafood dinner on a hot day.

Lime = Vinho Verde

Possibly the best value white for the summer. Cheap, refreshing, and low-alcohol.

Grapefruit = New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc

You thought it would be Kiwi, but we don't go in for jokes like that.

Tomato = Chianti

You didn't think we'd forget tomato did you? Oh yeah. We know it's still a fruit.

Banana = Marsanne

Full-bodied tropical fruit for days!

Mango = Vermentino

Another white you need to seek out if you never have.
