The warm weather is here..... and what goes hand-in-hand with summer??? You guessed it -- grillin'.
Whether you are grilling up some veggies, steaks, chicken, fish or just plain ole fashioned burgers & dogs..... this month's assignment is to post about a wine you chose to accompany food cooked on the grill. If you use wine to marinate.... by all means, mention that too -- recipes are always welcome!
If, like myself, you aren't quite sure what kind of wine best compliments grilled food -- don't be intimidated, take the opportunity to ask the personnel of your local wine shop -- in many cases he/she can make a fabulous recommendation.... they are just waiting to be asked.
If you are feeling particularly thirsty...... the extra credit assignment, in honor of Mother's Day, is LADIES CHOICE -- select a genre of wine that a lady in your life (wife, mother, daughter, girlfriend, sister) would enjoy -- try to select a label that you haven't tried before.
