Wine Tip of the Week: Eat This Drink That Series - Summertime BBQ

The good ole summertime means ribs, steaks, meat, meat and more meat!!
Eating this?: 
  • BBQ Ribs or Steak with a Good Tomato based BBQ Sauce
Drink this:
  • Red Zinfandel is a great go-to wine, stick to the fruitier styles.
  • Syrah is my favorite, especially for any smokey BBQ. Again the fruiter styles will pair best.
Avoid this:
  • A Big Oaky Chardonnay.  A big Chardonnay can pair well with a piece of meat simply grilled, but the BBQ sauce and the potential for both sweetness and spice will not make for a happy coupling.
