15 Apr Best Wines to Pair With BBQ
If you’ve been doing spring cleaning and dusting off the grill for the warm evenings, then you know it’s soon-to-be backyard barbeque time. If you’re more of a wine drinker and want to know what will best accompany your grilled smorgasbord, look no further. We are going to take a look at four wines that will pair perfectly with your next backyard cookout!
For starters, Pinot Noir is one of the most food-friendly wines there is. This red wine is delicate as to not overpower your dish and also pairs great with seafood. It can be especially good paired with smoked meats because it has its own earthy, smoky qualities.
Next, we’ll look at a dry rose wine. While this can be a fun, flirty wine it still has a good amount of acidity to stand up to your grilling. This is because of its watermelon, strawberry, or citrus aromas. This can pair with dishes from seafood to pork and veggie burgers to turkey burgers. Consider this refreshing beverage at your next cookout for sure!
Sparkling wine can tame the heat just like a cold light beer. These wines can liven up numerous grilled dishes and bring a fun or fancy feeling to your meal. Try bottles like prosecco or cava!
Lastly, a Barbera is a nice rounded wine with dark berries and savory notes. Try this if you’re looking for something lighter than a Cabernet. Also, try it chilled by putting it in the fridge for about thirty minutes before opening it.
Don’t be afraid to ask when you’re out looking for wines if you have preferences or want to pair your wine with a specific food. Generally, however, this list should give you a good idea of some staple wines that will make any barbeque a hit!
