Phyllis Jones of Lush Wine and Spirits stopped by the studio to give her best wine pairings for Fourth of July cookouts and picnics.
For a white wine to go with a Brussels sprout salad, Jones recommended Etz Gruner Veltliner. $18 for a one liter bottle.
Red wine goes well with barbecue items like burgers. Jones suggested Santa Tresa Frappato. $16 for a 750ml bottle, which she paired with assorted charcuterie.
Fresh fruit salads are great with rose, and Jones picked Chateau Nomad Rose. $20 for a 750ml bottle.
For fried chicken, choose a sparkling wine like Borell Diehl Gio Secco Rose Trocken. $16 for a 750ml bottle.
Many of these wines have screw tops. Jones said that contrary to popular belief, screw tops do not compromise taste and quality.
