Barbequed Foods and Wine

July 27, 2010

NeilFor some people, barbequed food is the best tasting food possible. I’ve personally even BBQ’d in January at -28c, huddled in the snow while the ribs slow-cooked on the back deck. No matter the food you grill- there is always a perfect wine to go with. Here are some of my favourites!

No matter what you barbeque, there is always a perfect wine to go with it!

A favorite of mine for BBQ food is the versatile Selection International Spanish Rioja. It’s a medium to full bodied red wine that is spicey, oaky and fruity. A classic bold red wine that has a bright, fresh flavour and goes wondefully with steak and other hearty red meats. Best served at around 61-64*F. If it’s hot out, you maywish to put the wine in the fridge for a few minutes. If you serve a red wine too warm, it tastes mostl of alcohol and you loose the wonderful flavours.

Another great wine with ribs and big thick steak is Selection Original Luna Rossa. This proprietory, red blend is big, bold and bountiful with loads of rich black fruits and oak, plenty of tannins and structure that makes it a perfect pairing for big, meaty, grilled food.

A perfect wine to celebrate everything that is Canadian made with Canadian raw materials that are ‘as good as gold’!

So here’s a toast to you all! “May you enjoy the fruits of your labours and may all your days be filled with great family, great friends, great food and of course great wine – Salute”

Happy Barbequing,

Neil, Manager (Wine Sense- Brandon)
