BBQ Steaks love Tannins. Bold and Tannic red wines pair best.

Tempranillo loves Lamb BBQ.

Grilled Pork is a little sweet, and pairs best with light and fruity red wines.

Grilled White Fish pairs best with high acid white wines.

Grilled Salmon and Fat fish pair best with a full body white wine.

Grilled vegetables pair best with a grassy Sauvignon Blanc or a peppery Grüner Veltliner.

Sparkling wines pair well with almost any grilled food. No need to go for vintage Champagne. Prosecco or Cava will do well.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
