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.


  • The ideal pairing for beef burger

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

  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with 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.
