Fun 4th of July Food and Wine Pairings to Try

Hot dogs and sparkling wine? Sure, give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Food and wine pairings don’t always include the classics such as cabernet sauvignon and steak. For fun try a sauvignon blanc with guacamole, or buttered popcorn with a buttery chardonnay.

Here we have some Fourth of July pairings from our friends at BevMo! which is having a sale.

Hot Dogs and Sparkling Wine

Charles Ninot Sparkling Wine Brut; $16.99 and second one for 5 cents.

The bubbles and citrus help to cut the fattiness and complement the saltiness.

Grilled Corn and Chardonnay

Bushranger Cpt. Starlight Chardonnay '09; $16.99 and second one for 5 cents. 

The citrus and mineral flavors and full body are the perfect complement to the sweet corn and salty butter.

Spicy Brats and Syrah

Hahn Estates Syrah '10; $15.99 and second one for 5 cents.

A full-bodied red with ripe fruit tones compliments the heat.

Burgers and Zinfandel

Gen 5 Zinfandel '10; $14.99 and second one for 5 cents.

This rich and slightly peppery wine pairs well with smokey flavors, and even barbeque sauce.
