Drink pairing tips for Barbeque

  • Pair 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.

  • Take pork to the next level

    Experts often pair pork with a glass of Pinot Noir, a popular red 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.
