There really is a day for everything, and what better to celebrate than TACOS! According to NationalTacoDay.com and NationalDayCalendar.com, October 4th is #NationalTacoDay. I’ve chosen three delicious taco recipes and their perfect wine pairings you can enjoy today and all year long.

Roasted Veggie Tacos

Whether looking for vegetarian options or otherwise, roasted veggies are always delicious no matter what your preference or whatever time of year. The deep roasted flavor allows the veggies in these tacos to stand up to heavier bodied whites, roses, and reds alike.

Slow Cooker Carnitas Tacos

The juicy tenderness of the pork shoulder is a natural pairing for the spectrum of our red wines, from the lighter bodied with red fruits to the fuller bodied, bold deep fruits and spice.
