July fourth is a perfect time to talk about pairing wine with food.

The holiday is packed with all kinds of traditional and regional American flavors and classic recipes. It’s also a great excuse to explore American wines from wine-producing regions like California, Washington, Oregon and the North Fork of Long Island, New York.

In this video, we look to the principle, “What grows together goes together.” One of the 4 rules for pairing food and wine, at least according to our guide to wine and food pairing, is to respect local flavor and tradition. So when it comes to wine and barbecue, there is a perfect pairing, probably more than one!

When American cuisine, like hamburgers and hotdogs, BBQ chicken, potato salad and deviled eggs are on the menu, the best food and wine pairing ideas should be American! At least for one day of the year.

Watch the video  and let me know what you think.

Happy 4th!
