Drink pairing tips for Barbeque

  • Sauvignon Blanc and pork ribs with a barbecue rub


    A pork ribs with a barbecue rub can be tricky to find a white wine pairing for. We would suggest trying Sauvignon Blanc. It will pair nicely with the food and complete the meal thanks to its acidic.

  • Enjoy grilled turkey burger with Rosé

    To elevate your grilled turkey burger experience, we recommend some Rosé to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this pink wine battles the grilled flavours.

  • Pinot Noir and pork


    When considering what goes best with pork, we recommend a glass of Pinot Noir, it truly complements the dish as it highlights the richer flavours of the meat.
