Drink pairing tips for Barbeque

  • Go for Rosé with grilled turkey burger

    For an elevated experience, pair your grilled turkey burger with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine battles the grilled flavours.


  • Zinfandel with your beef burger

    If your food palns include Barbeque, then you should consider helping it along with some red wine. We find that a Zinfandel, with its hits of spice tones, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • Pinot Noir and pork


    When considering how to best enjoy your pork, we would highlight how well a glass of Pinot Noir complements the dish as it highlights the richer flavours of the meat.
