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 Schlossgut Diel Nahe Riesling Kabinett with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 23 dollars per bottle.
