BBQ Wines

Recommended by our Wine Expert Gilles

a selection of wines perfect for your BBQ this summer.

Summer is the perfect time to dust down the BBQ and fire up the coals,
weather permitting of course!
Al fresco eating is perfect to gather family and friends and of course wine is central to this! BBQ or grilling changes the flavour of the food, caramelizing and giving it a smoky, toasty taste. Many types of food can be grilled; fish, meat, vegetables.

Matching BBQ food with wine will depend on added flavours, such as herbs, spices, garlic or marinades, which, makes the food more tender and adds extra flavours.

Gilles our wine expert has chosen some wines for you to pair with BBQ food. We hope you enjoy…
