Drink pairing tips for Barbeque

  • The perfect match for your beef burger

    Experts often pair beef burger with a glass of Zinfandel, a popular red wine.

  • 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 with your 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.

Fun facts about Barbeque

  • A delicious pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s steak you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a tea. The tannin-rich flavors of the tea won’t detract from the flavors of your steak.
