BBQ Wine Pairings for Memorial Day

With a range of colors and styles, try a classic Bordeaux and burger combo or something unexpected like a chilled sweet Sauternes with a spicy jicama salad. Whatever the combo, happy grilling and a long awaited welcome to summer!

Salads & Starters 

White Bordeaux blends more likely than not include Sauvignon Blanc. Depending on the AOC or terroir of a particular wine, you can find a range of tasting notes from crisp and citrus-y to minerally and herbaceous. On a hot summer day, our whites are refreshing on their own or served alongside your favorite starters like a fresh and crispy salad or a buttery corn on the cob. Explore the white wines from Entre-Deux-Mers, Graves, Pessac-Leognan or Bordeaux AOC.

Beef, Beef, Beef 

Bordeaux never met a grilled meat it didn’t love. It’s a classic combination and for good reason. Try a Cabernet dominant blend from the Left Bank like Medoc or Haut-Medoc and wash that burger down in style.

Versatile Reds 

Red wine lovers need not give up their reds in summer. There are plenty of Bordeaux wine options that are fresh, fruity and easy drinking on their own or with food. Slightly chill a red from Bordeaux or Bordeaux Superieur on a hot summer day.
