have your burger and drink your wine, too.

can you really pair one of your best backyard grilled patties with a glass of wine? although beer may be the burger’s traditional pairing, food and wine executive wine editor, ray isle suggests quite the contrary. what’s even better about his creative pairings? every bottle he suggest is UNDER $20.

interestingly, he suggests the pairing is not based on the meat, but rather on the sauce and the toppings. my favorite burger and wine combo? the avocado, jalapeno, pepper jack burger with salsa paired with a  2009 redtree pinot noir ($10)

i am definitely looking forward to grilling this summer and breaking out the corkscrew, not the bottle opener while i’m at it.

salud and happy grilling!
