Barbecue’s typical beverage pairing is usually a cold brew. But you don’t have to eschew the ’cue just because you’re seeking a more refined beverage. Wine gets along fine with the Southern delicacy. Just ask the organizers of Burgundy and Barbecue, a pairing event by Cascade at the iconic Biltmore Hotel (1200 Anastasia Ave., Coral Gables).
Cascade’s sommelier has selected six vinos from the Burgundy region: three reds and three whites. They’ll serve Chardonnay from two villages — Macon and Chablis — and a sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. Red-wine lovers will get to swig two Pinot Noirs from Bourgogne and a classic Beaujolais.
All grapes will be paired with custom barbecued creations by chef David Hackett. So throw those beer-and-barbecue stereotypes to the wind and try something different. You can never go wrong when wine is involved.
