Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel
Southern works really well 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.
