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 J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 56 dollars per bottle.
J.J. Prum Graacher Himmelreich Spatlese Riesling"A tad reduced in aroma, this young white has plenty of intensity, offering lime, peach and slate flavors matched to a silky texture. It's awkward today, needing time to integrate. Best from 2008 through 2020. 1,500 cases made." –BS
