Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel
Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. The Von Winning Winnings Riesling with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.
Von Winning Winnings RieslingIf you loved the 2014 — and if you didn't, we need to send out a search party for your heart — you’ll find this one happy, happy, happy. Stronger than '14, it's also both drier and richer. And that’s as it should be; the pittance of sweetness it contains will rise and fall with the structure of each year's wine, because that's what sensible vintners do. The others just set up a formula and the wine"“has—XY— grams of sugar and zat's zat." Not Winnings Riesling. This will always be teasingly dry and teasingly sweet so you’ll keep changing your mind ("Wait, it's a dry wine, no, it's a sweet wine, no wait, it's a dry wine again….") while the bottle empties faster than you could have imagined.
