Southern can be paired with Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel. 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 J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Kabinett Riesling with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 22 dollars per bottle.
