Wine and Beer Guide

Whether you are raising your glass for a toast, or pouring it into a stock pot, wine and beer are equally great for cooking and enjoying.

Pairing Wine with Grilled Foods

There’s nothing like the smoky infusion that the grill gives to our favorite meat, poultry, and fish. Match wisely to accentuate this flavor.

Barbecued Chicken

Barbecued chicken takes on a nice char as it cooks on the grill—especially bone-in chicken, which takes longer to cook. Since that char leaves the palate feeling dry, reach for a light, crisp white to counterbalance.

VALUE: Reilly's Watervale Riesling 2007 ($15) Tropical stone fruit flavors; bone-dry finish

Casa Marin Sauvignon Blanc Cipresses 2008 ($20) Ripping acidity and the faintest hint of jalapeño (pictured)

Kartauserhof Smaragd Grüner Veltliner Achleiten 2007 ($30) Grapefruit, smokiness, complexity
