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. 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.

"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
