Wine with Pork for National Pig Day (seriously) + the Ginger Chef

By in Occasions, The Butler Wine-Show

March 1st is National Pig Day. So we invited ourselves down to The Ginger Pig – one of the Bib Gourmand winning Ginger Group.

We’ve picked three wines to go with Pork:

Italian Gavi tastes of apples so is a natural fit.
Spanish Rioja is made with Iberico ham in mind, so a red with that works well.
And Portugal’s Baga grape leads the Luis Paton Rebel – another great red.

Now get piggin’!

To help us mark National Pig Day, the very talented Ben McKellar – the talent behind the chain of “Ginger” restaurants in the South East – takes us through a dish using a trio of pork.

Tenderloin, crispy pig’s head, and amazing balls of deep fried black pudding come together with carrots and pea shoots in a dish from The Ginger Pig.

Seek out his restaurants – they collectively were awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand – and use local seasonal produce to great effect.
