Wine and Barbecue Pairings

Italian sausage and peppers: Pair with Sidonio de Sousa Tinto

Sidonio de Sousa Colheita Tinto

“Indigenous to Portugal, the Baga grape plays the lead in this smoky red.  Crushed berries blend beautifully with hints of tobacco and green peppercorn; a smooth, yet nuanced wine that would work beautifully with flavorful Italian sausage and peppers.”

Grill-charred tomatoes, corn or summer squash: Pair with Ignios Origenes Listan Negro

Ignios Origenes Listan Negro Seleccion Ycoden

“Unique to the Canary Islands, this full red has aromas of red plum, rhubarb, and savory garden herbs making it the perfect pairing with grilled summer veggies.”

Blue Cheese Burger: Pair with Domaine des Lises “Equinoxe” Crozes-Hermitage

Crozes Hermitage Equinox 2014

“Classic French Syrah is known for its inky purple hue, subtle olive and bramble nose, and silken tannins.  That, combined with a subtle smokiness, makes this the go-to wine for a blue cheese burger.”

Spiced Lamb Kebobs: Pair with Chatzivariti Eurynome Chatzivarit Eurynome

“This medium to full-bodied Greek wine offers rich and complex aromas of blackberries, vanilla, and leather, carrying through with a long, focused finish. This is an excellent wine to pair with spiced lamb kabobs.”

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri: Pair with Allamand “H” Red Blend

H 2011 Botella

“Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins, this Argentine red is the perfect marriage of Malbec’s sultry spice and Cabernet’s bold structure. Open a bottle to pair with skirt steak and chimichurri for the true Churrascaria experience.”
