The cold weather is finally gone and grilling season is upon us! Here marks the start of a four-month period filled with family, friends, and food. A stretch sprinkled with summer Fridays and long weekends. The time of year when you catch the seven o’clock news on the radio while barbecuing, not on TV in the den.
Grilling season is also when the Beaujolais Crus truly shine. Why? Because barbecuing without beef is like dancing without music, and red meat without red wine is like a half written song. Enter Beaujolais – the only reds that carry your burgers and steaks without weighing you down in the heat like a Cab or Merlot.
Next weekend, serve your friends a glass of chilled Beaujolais alongside their burger or steak and watch the smiles grow. And if you really want to show off, check out this recipe for grilled prime rib. Its sauce is full of Fleurie, our wine of the month!
