Dark fruitiness, soft tannins and an incredibly balanced taste shine through in the Californian barbecue. For a fiery Texas brisket, choose a full-bodied, luscious, and bold, oak-aged tin. Its nose of jam and the intense aromas of fruit and firm tannins go well with the smoky depths of this dish. Memphis ribs are heavily seasoned with a dry mix of brown sugar, chili powder, pepper, and cumin and slowly cooked. Although these ribs are known as “dry ribs,” the meat remains juicy, tender, and full of flavor.
The Zinfandel has a touch of sweetness that goes perfectly with tomato-based KC BBQ sauces. However, the wine lacked the flavor for the tangy brisket and the finish was too light, again a result of the ridge-style zin. Their wine pairing with the South Carolina flair was perfect. Here in Kentucky we use the same technique and ALWAYS serve a good Riesling with our ribs or pulled pork.
When I pair wine with grilled and grilled dishes, I really use the same principles as any type of food and wine pairing. “I have customers who just like red wine; if they eat chicken or fish, they drink Cabernet, that’s what they’ll drink,” he says. “There are people who say, ‘drink this wine with this meal.’ It’s important, but if you like certain wines, take them with you.
- This juicy wine exudes pronounced aromas of chocolate, liquorice, blackberry, blueberry and spices.
- Sparkling wines are among the most versatile food accompaniments there are.
- Texas Barbecue is divided into parts based on the East, Central, West and South Texas regions.
Sparkling wines are among the most versatile food accompaniments there are. They go great with seafood, vegetables, and even grilled chicken. Treat yourself to Cava from Spain or Prosecco from Italy to pair with every day.
Wine Accompaniment To Grilled Seafood
As with hot dogs and sausages, burger and wine pairings can go in many directions depending on the mix of the burger and its toppings. As long as the tannins are soft and the influence of the new oak is minimal, almost any red wine will do. As a general rule of thumb, however, wines that go well with spicy hot dogs, beef hot dogs, and chili dogs are also perfect with burgers. Many different wines can be made from fried chicken, depending on the ingredients that are used with the chicken.
Well, the best wine pairing with fish starts with the type of fish. Strong fish that do not qualify for the “fish fillet” category go best with medium-heavy white wines such as Pinot Gris. However, meaty, steak-like fish like tuna can withstand grilling well and can blend well with lighter and lighter shades of red like pinot noir. Fish that swim in the middle, like salmon, go well with bolder white wines, especially oak-accented Chardonnay. However, because salmon is so malleable, it can be used with a wide variety of wines.
Wine Accompaniment To Your Grill Dishes
The aromatic nose of Rioja is full of coconut and black fruits. If you want to splurge, grab a bottle of red wine made 100% with Tempranillo. The high acidity and fine tannins of this wine harmonize well with the smoked breast. Grilled or grilled lamb has a strong, smoky flavor that can be overwhelming without the right wine accompaniment.
A Côtes du Rhône South (a Châteauneuf-du-Pape if you can afford it) goes great with a piece of veal breast. The body is right, the acidity is right and the fruity notes harmonize perfectly with a delicious sauce. If you’d rather cook a Texas-style beef brisket with a spice dressing and chili powder, you probably want to go in a different direction with your wine accompaniment. I would be inclined to opt for a Syrah-based red wine, perhaps from the north of the Rhone.
Came With Brisket
Grilled shrimp with tomato and smoked tones go best with the red fruit tones of dry pink. A dry white wine like Vintner’s Reserve Riesling or Muscat are ideal pairings. If grilled prawns top a salad, opt for a herb Sauvignon Blanc that is paired with the greens.
If you keep it simple with a little butter, salt, and pepper, there’s nothing like the creaminess of a chardonnay, especially one that shows off new oak toast character. Firm tannins and high acidity make the Barolo a full-bodied red wine, perfect for oily breasts, flavored with a spicy and smoky note. The high fat content of the meat absorbs tannins very well, which allows the fruity aromas to shine through and seduce both the palate and the nose. Zin is possibly the most popular brisket accompaniment to wine.

Take a look at my previous post on salmon wine pairings to fully explore the possibilities. We believe it was The Donald who said, “Always go with the first thing that comes to mind.” This time it turned out to be good advice when choosing a wine. We thought a Shiraz from Barossa, AU, would fit the chest perfectly.
The key to doing this, once the method you want to use has been used, is choosing wines that complement your chosen smoke, sauce, and seasonings. Throw away the wine rules if you use them and have fun; Combine a red wine with smoked chicken or a white wine with pulled pork. Let’s start right away with a bottle of the great Dracone red wine, a blend of 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot. The tannins are powerful but soft and the roundness of the Merlot decreases with great purity without sagging, reinforced by the herbaceous influences of the Franc.
Wine Accompaniment With Hot Dogs And Sausages
In fact, its complexity of mixed grape varieties makes it one of the best pairing for pork ribs. Since pork is a lighter meat, the lighter fruit flavors of Pinot Noir make it one of the best grilled pork wines. Pinot Noir and Pulled Pork also work well, although pulled pork is deliciously greasy. While Pinot Noir is lighter in tannin, it is bursting with refreshing acidity to “cleanse” the palate. This acidity also goes very well with the cheerful vinegar elements in pork barbecue sauces.
The Dracone Riserva 2011 is a fabulous wine, perfect with grilled meat, T-bone steak or ribs with barbecue sauce. The other side of the wine pairing equation is called body. A light Pinot Grigio might not sit next to a smoked rib with a spicy sauce, but it goes great with grilled fish or vegetables. There is another fun brisket red wine that comes in handy when you don’t have a smoker or on a rainy day. If the braised sauce isn’t too hot, stick with Cabernet Sauvignon. But do you know that you can swap anything you serve in your glass for a cheaper red wine to braise the brisket.
Some traditional combinations are Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignons, but red mixes are also a great option to please a wide variety of palates. This red mixture is best drunk with a slight coolness to bring out the slight sweetness of the brisket, duck and barbecue sauce. Sparkling wine brings out the flavors of charcoal and barbecue smoke from Carolina and Kansas City. Dry, fruity wines go well with the sweetness of Texas and Memphis dry mixes, balancing out the salt content. Acid and citrus wines go well with any barbecue sauce, even those made with Carolina vinegar.
