What wine do you pair with a red hot Korean seafood soup – jjamppong? What wine would you drink on a red hot summer day? We think the answer is one and the same – a chilled, medium-bodied rosé, of course! The most refreshing of sips to balance out the intense heat. Join us on this spicy adventure as we break rules and challenge wine tasting expectations!
The next stop on the spicy road: South Korea. Jjamppong is one of the most popular dishes that you can order from a Korean restaurant, and for good reason! It is a comforting, yet refreshing combination of veggies, seafood and noodles in a spicy red broth. Don’t be intimidated if you are more sensitive to spice, you can simply tone down the heat by reducing the amount of Gochugaru while cooking this dish at home. Try out our version of jjamppong along with this wine pairing and let us know what you think!
