Food & Wine Pairing: Backyard Grillside Wine Pairing Cheat Sheet

July 25th, 2014

Wondering what to bring home from the wine shop to pair with the bounty from the farmer’s market? Here’s a nice food & wine cheat sheet for summer grilling. [level-members]

The folks at Serious Eats have put together a nice cheat sheet that offers options for pairing with everything from veggies to fish to classic standbys like burgers and steaks. Some of our favorites:

  • Poulsard with mergez or other lamb sausage
  • Verdelho and Vinho Verde with grilled chicken
  • Lambrusco as an all-arounder for any kind of grilled food
We particularly love the idea that “rosé should be in your kitchen at all times.”

You can check the full article out on the Serious Eats website.

Get out there and grill.
