For your Memorial Day Celebrations. Worth reposting from two years ago…
Even though Memorial Day weekend is almost a month ahead of the astronomical beginning of summer this is the big kickoff weekend for the most of us (well, here in my part of the world anyway). This is the time in the wine world when we shift from some of the heavy reds to cool crisp whites, rosés, and yes, sangrias! (goes well with anything outdoors). A lot of BBQ’ed meats tend to have a sweetness due to the sauces we use and so here are some wines that go well with some of the most popular grilled meats, seafood, and salads.
Burgers – do well with Merlot, Shiraz, Zinfandel, and for the hearty, Cabernet Sauvignon
Ribs – Zinfandel, Shiraz, Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Barbera, Barbaresco
Steak – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, or any red you like
Chicken – White Zinfandel (if you must), Chardonnay (depending on how the chicken is prepared), Rosé
