Baja-Style Fish Tacos

Indulge in the iconic Baja-Style Fish Tacos at Casanova Fish Tacos in Baja, CA, and enhance your culinary experience with the perfect wine pairing. The grilled fish, fresh toppings, and warm tortillas of these mouthwatering tacos are perfectly complemented by a light and vibrant white wine like a Sauvignon Blanc or a Verdejo.

Grilled Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

If you’re craving a smoky and slightly spicy kick, our grilled chipotle shrimp tacos are a fantastic choice. The succulent shrimp is marinated in a delectable house-made chipotle sauce and then grilled to perfection. The smoky flavors of the shrimp call for a crisp and refreshing wine. A Sauvignon Blanc or a dry Riesling with its vibrant acidity and citrus notes can cut through the richness of the chipotle sauce while enhancing the natural flavors of the shrimp.

The fruity and earthy undertones of these wines complement the richness of the beef, creating a harmonious combination of flavors.

Grilled Sweet Ginger Fish Tacos
