    When having grilled turkey burger, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Rosé, a popular pink wine.

  • Zinfandel with your beef burger

    If your food palns include Barbeque, then you should consider helping it along with some red wine. We find that a Zinfandel, with its hits of spice tones, serves as the best pairing to the dish.
