Summer Reds and Dinner Al Fresco
Summer is the season to step outside the kitchen and instead, fire up the grill and serve dinner on the patio, al fresco. Don’t forget that summertime isn’t just the season for white and rosé wines to shine. Make your grilled meals magical when you open up a bold bottle of red. Purple Cowboy and Girl & Dragon wines make delicious additions to dinner cooked over an open flame.
Here are some seasonal pairings to try this summer:
Bacon-wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Purple Cowboy Tenacious Red
Silly question… how do you take any grilled meat to the next level? Just add bacon. This recipe for Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin from Ally’s Cooking has summertime written all over it.
Purple Cowboy Trail Boss Cabernet with Grilled Meatloaf
Tip: skip your oven and opt for the grill this season. Put a spin on a classic favorite, like old-fashioned meatloaf by putting it on the grill. This Grilled Meatloaf recipe from Macheesmo will have you coming back for seconds.
Girl & Dragon Malbec with Balsamic Baby Back Ribs
Summer isn’t complete without making a generous batch of baby back ribs. We suggest picking up two racks, because you’re going to want to fill your plate with these Balsamic Baby Back Ribs from Taste and See.
Girl & Dragon Malbec is a tried-and-true favorite with grilled fare. Turn these ooey, gooey grilled ribs into a real treat when you pair them with a glass of Girl & Dragon Malbec. (shop now | find near you)
