Bettering the BBQ: Our Top 15 Grill-Worthy Wine Picks

Barbecue season is in full-swing and with summer’s official start now here, it’s time for a list of our favorite charcoal-friendly wine picks. No one will deny that summertime is barbecue time, but what are the best wines to accompany your burgers, dogs, and ribs? Never fear. We have those questions answered. This year’s 15 selections are based on our best sellers that are most appropriate for barbecue, wines that can pair with the basic and expected barbecue choices (see above!) to the more aspirational. If you’re looking to expand your barbecue repertoire past the ordinary into the extraordinary (we’re thinking lamb shish kebabs, grilled halibut, seasonal vegetables, and a pizza or two in lieu of chicken breasts and tomato-based sauce), these wines will raise the stakes on the outdoor dinner party. From a rosé from Tavel that simply sings to honeyed German Riesling to spicy, pepper-laden Grenache from the good, old, U.S.A., these wines will push the boundaries of what it means to drink well in summer. Sift through our picks and dispense with tradition. This could be the year that your family barbecue rises to new heights.
