Since chicken is such a popular recipe in most kitchens today we’ll show you which wines are best paired with different chicken recipes!

3.Zinfandel- Paired with BBQ Chicken
BBQ chicken tends to have a smokey flavor and then there’s the robust flavor of the barbecue sauce that also comes into play. This meal requires a robust Zinfandel red wine like Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi—a full-bodied red wine with vanilla and toast flavors. Cabernet Franc and the ever popular Malbec are great options to pair with BBQ chicken as well.

During the hot summer months, a salad for lunch or dinner is the perfect dish to keep you cool, and you know what also pairs well with a salad, a cool glass of white wine like this Montecillo Singladuras Albariño.
