Hello Wisconsin celebrated with some helpful knowledge you can use on the patio or at your cabin this weekend. We blended wine fun with grilling fun! Jean McIlquham, the Owner of Autumn Harvest winery, joined the show to put our pairing skills to the test. We are going to see who knows more about which wine to pair with all these delicious grill favorites.
We have classic grilling favorites…chicken, steak, pork, and shrimp… i want to challenge you guys to place the bottle of wine you think pairs the best with these grilling foods.
Chicken pairs with dry white
Steak pairs with dry red
Shrimp pairs with sweet white
If you are having grilled dessert like grilled pineapple… then a delicious dessert wine like sweet white would be perfect!
