On May 10th  Chicago’s Iconic Connie’s Pizza and Grapestobottles teamed up together to give you the ultimate taste of two things that you like the most-good wine and wood fired pizza paired together.

Inspired by food and wine magazine, here are just a few examples we will be pairing:

Chianti + Prosciutto & Arugula

Good Chianti is savory and spicy, so it's good with salty cured meats like prosciutto or peppery greens—or both together.

Primitivo + Amante della Carne or Meatlover’s

Big southern Italian reds like Primitivo are juicy and full-bodied, just the wines for a classic meat slice like this one.

Pinot Noir + Funghi

There's no better pairing than Pinot and mushroom medley with taleggio—they're all about earth and spice.

A little truffle oil makes the match even better.

Rosato + Verdure Arrosto

A roasted vegetable topping makes for a fairly light slice—even with all that cheese—so go with a lighter style of wine. Rosato (the Italian term for dry rosé) is a tasty choice.

Barbera + Marguerita

Barbera, a medium-bodied red from Italy's Piedmont, is berry-bright and only moderately tannic—great with fresh tomatoes and fresh basil.

and many more options and combinations will be available for you and your group.

After all we will have over 200 pairing combinations.

Dress to impress.
