Recommended wine: Riesling, Sparkling Wine, Zinfandel

Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Fried Chicken. 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. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 10 dollars per bottle.

J. Lohr Estates Bay Mist White Riesling
Pale straw in color, our Bay Mist White Riesling has enticing floral aromas with green apricots and pippin apple fruit. The aromas are expanded on the palate, adding orange blossom and lychee. With 2.56% residual sugar balanced by the naturally crisp acidity and spritz from a long cool fermentation, the White Riesling is a refreshing wine capable of complementing the vibrant flavors of Pacific Rim cuisine or standing on its own as an aperitif.
