Five of Dave Sokolin’s Go-To Reds for Summer BBQs

Five of Dave Sokolin’s Go-To Reds for Summer BBQs

It’s not summer without a backyard BBQ, and Dave Sokolin is here to share five of his go-to red wines that pair well with summer BBQs. "When I barbecue, I look for something bold that can handle big fire and sauces from being on the grill. I also look for wines with style and subtleties that can shine through. Here are my five picks that I will be barbecuing with this summer, with prices starting at only $31.95." - Dave Sokolin

2019 Alex Foillard Brouilly - $31.95 | 93 VM - "The king of Beaujolais makes ethereal styled wines." - Dave Sokolin

2016 Michele Chiarlo Barbaresco Reyna - $37.99 | 94 WE - "This refined Piedmont from the legendary 2016 vintage pairs well with most BBQ ideas." - Dave Sokolin

2015 Barde Haut - $44.99 | 96 JD – “A classic, 96 point Saint Emilion that drinks great today - only $44.99!" - Dave Sokolin

2016 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino - $57.95 | 95 DEC – “Ahh, one of Brunello's legends - perfect to drink while barbecuing and with dinner." - Dave Sokolin

2016 Capture Revelation Cabernet Sauvignon - $89 | 98 JD - "This is for steak night - a mega 98 pointer for only $89! Imagine if California cult wine was designed in Bordeaux and cost 1/10th the price, and you’ve got Capture." - Dave Sokolin

Sending best wishes for a great summer!
