Grill & Sip Summer Pairings

Summer grilling is in the air. Whether you prefer a tender steak, tasty veggies, or grilled fish, it’s time to move your dinners outdoors!
Enhance the flavors of your favorite dish with these perfectly paired BBQ wines.

Steak BBQ Wine Pairings

Grilled Meats


Wine “meats” its perfect match with these delicious pairings. Enhance the tender, juicy flavors of meat dishes with the bold, rich flavors of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Red Blends, and Merlot.

Dinner plans? Uncork the Cabernet Sauvginon and sear up a juicy steak with this flavorful recipe: Argentinian Marinated Steak

Grilled Fish BBQ Wine Pairings

Grilled Fish


A great catch for these wine varietals, fish pairs beautifully with Rosé, Verdelho, Chardonnay, and Riesling. The crisp, refreshing flavors and bright characteristics of these wines balance the oils of delicate fish hot off the grill.

If you love the smoky aromas that fill the summer air, soak your cedar planks, sip a Chardonnay, and try this tasty salmon entrée: Lemon Pepper Salmon with Horseradish-Chive Sauce

Grilled Vegetables BBQ Wine Pairings

Grilled Vegetables


Veggie lovers will adore these pairings. The ripe fruit notes of Pinot Noir, Sparkling Red, Chardonnay, Grenache, and Sauvignon Blanc complement the simplicity of grilled veggies in olive oil or lightly seasoned with your favorite spices.

For slightly fancier veggie fare, grab the breadcrumbs, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and grill up this delightful eggplant dish: Parmesan & Basil Grilled Eggplant
