different types of hummus

Pair Wine & Hummus

We’re pairing two of our favorite things today, hummus and obviously, wine! Hummus makes the perfect happy hour snack, it’s healthy and light, and adding a glass of wine won’t fill you up before dinner.

Use this guide to find the perfect type of wine for your favorite flavor of hummus.

Classic Hummus & Chardonnay

Classic hummus, although simple, is still packed with flavor. The smooth, creamy hummus pairs perfectly with a creamy white wine like Chardonnay.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus & Barbera d’Asti

The savory tart flavor the sun-dried tomatoes add to hummus pairs well with a light, acidic red wine like Barbera d’Asti which will add flavors of black cherry and dried herbs.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus & Pinot Noir

The smokiness the roasted red peppers adds to hummus makes the earthiness of a red Pinot Noir the optimal pairing.

Roasted Garlic Hummus & Pinot Grigio

While classic hummus already has garlic in it, a roasted garlic hummus really adds a punch to it. Because of that, a light white wine like a Pinot Grigio is the perfect contrast to the bold garlic.

Avocado Hummus & Chenin Blanc

The light and creamy avocado hummus pairs so well with the high acidity and citrusy flavors of a Chenin Blanc.

Whether you like store-bought hummus or love making your own at home, you’ll always know which wine to pair it with.
