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. You could try Weingut Willi Schaefer Graacher Domprobst Riesling Spatlese Number 5. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 69 dollars per bottle.
