The Grilling Trio

Whether you’re grilling tender cuts or sizzling veggies, these great wines will elevate a long weekend — and they're all under $30. 

1.) 2019 Marietta Roman Estate Zinfandel
North Coast, CA

“The 2019 Roman Zinfandel (blended with 4% Barbera and 2% Petite Sirah) has a medium ruby-purple color and gregarious scents of candied peach, wild berry preserves, orange peel and tar. The palate is deeply fruited but light on its feet with bright freshness and loads of perfume on the long finish.” — 95 Points, Robert Parker

Pair with grass-fed ribeye steak


2.) 2019 Lang & Reed Cabernet Franc
North Coast, CA

“Complex graphite, tobacco, red stone fruit, and singed herb flavors. This is textbook Cabernet Franc from a small OG California producer. Perfect for rich flavors and hearty meals.” — 93 Points, Phillip Dunn

Pair with grilled vegetables from your local farmer's market


3.) 2019 Chateau Du Moulin A Vent Couvent Des Thorins
Beaujolais, France

“A delightful red from one of the major producers in Beaujolais, this wine is bright and lithe with subtle tannins and red fruit. It’s a classic French Beaujolais — serve slightly chilled alongside grilled meats and veggies.” — 93 Points, Phillip Dunn 

Pair with seared duck breast
