Memorial Day Food & Wine Pairings | Red Wine BBQ Sauce Recipe

Cheers to Summer!

Beachy Flatlay.jpg

Memorial Day is the “unofficial” start to Summer and there's no better way to embrace the season than with a bottle of wine! This time of year, many people trade reds for chilled whites and rosés, but don’t swap out those reds just yet! Lighter reds such as our
Pinot Noir and Chambourcin are delicious served with a slight chill. 

Most importantly, it’s a great time to kick back, relax, and enjoy a glass under the sun! 

A true wine lover’s barbeque sauce recipe, the addition of our award-winning
Chambourcin creates a rich complexity to the sauce that will have your guests
wondering what your secret ingredient is…
