Avacados have more Potassium than bananas and are loaded with Heart-Healthy Monounsaturated Fatty Acids. Avocados Are Loaded With Fiber and can lower Cholesterol and Triglyceride Levels.

Zesty white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc; the mouth-watering acidity in the wine cuts through the sweetness and fattiness of the avocado.

A non-vintage sparkling wine, Pinot Grigio, and Rieslings also pair well with avocados.

More varieties coming soon!
