Grilled Chicken Pairings

6 great wines for summer grilling


Next » 1 of 8
Grilled Chicken Pairings Chicken is a delicate meat and the truth is, it can really be dominated by the flavors of the grill, or any marinades and sauces that make up a specific dish.

The good news, though, is that sort of neutral base makes grilled chicken wonderfully wine-friendly and easily adaptable to many styles of preparation! Personally, I’m a big fan of spicy brined chicken grilled over grapevine clippings and served with a simple tomato and bread salad. It makes for a perfect summer supper and pairs well with all sorts of white wines, though I really like it with a light, fruity red wine like Frappato.

If that sounds familiar, I’ll try harder and make sure the rest of my recommendations for grilled chicken include the arcane and the insane!

    These are really good wines to pair with the chicken, but why not a beautiful rosé, or, as I like, a New World Pinot (from California rather than Oregon)? What do you think?

    A pinot noir from California, Oregon or Western Washington sounds good to me. We don't get pints from Western Washington every year, but when we do they are really good.
