Wine Pairings for the Perfect BBQ

It goes without saying that one of the best ways to experience local delicacies is to hire a food tour guide. Whether it’s exploring the hidden culinary gems in Whistler, British Columbia, with Skai Dalziel, selecting dim sum dishes in San Francisco’s Chinatown with Tom Medin, or sipping world-famous wines in Rome with Alessandro Patrizi, a food tour guide will ensure your mouth is full of deliciousness and smiling – wherever you are in the world.

When not roaming, however, it’s still important to have great culinary experiences – even if you’re just in someone’s backyard. Which is why we’ve decided to share this Vinepair infographic that describes six of the most popular wine varietals out there (sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, cava, rosé, pinot noir and malbec) and the kinds of barbecue dishes they’re best paired with. So when you’re not exploring the best food trucks in LA, eating barbecued oysters in Tomales Bay, sipping wine in New Zealand or enjoying a chocolate adventure in Ecuador, sit back and relax beside your backyard BBQ, grill some delicious food and wash it all down with a perfectly paired bottle of wine. Salut!
