Looking for a delicious wine to pair with this Pesto Salmon Pasta masterpiece? A crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from Di Stasio Winery would be the perfect choice to cut through the richness of the pesto, while also complementing the bright acidity of the cherry tomatoes.

For those who prefer a fuller-bodied white wine, a buttery Chardonnay from Rombauer or the Masquerade from Belledor would be a great option to balance the flavors of the salmon and pesto. If you’re in the mood for a pink drink, then a dry rosé from Vino Noceto with its fruity notes and refreshing acidity would be an excellent match to the flavors of the dish. Finally, a Grenache from Amador Cellars with its juicy red fruit flavors and soft tannins would be the perfect red wine to pair with the delicate flavors of the salmon and pesto. Go ahead and experiment with these wine pairing options and find the perfect match to complement this delicious dish.
