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 King Frosch Riesling Auslese All Natural German with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.
