Drink pairing tips for Barbeque

  • Enjoy grilled turkey burger with Rosé

    For an elevated experience, pair your grilled turkey burger with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine battles the grilled flavours.


  • Zinfandel and 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.

  • 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.
