Italian Wines Paired with BBQ

This month I'm hosting our Italian Food, Wine & Travel group of writers as we jump into the dog days of summer featuring Italian wines paired with barbeque dishes.  If you're like me I don't like to keep the oven cranking to put a meal on the table for my family.  Putting meals together on the grill is not only easy, it's delicious.  Plus, while you're waiting for your food to cook you can sit on the patio or deck and sip on an Italian wine before your meal is ready.  Win win!

There are so many great Italian wines all over Italy that pair well in the summer months with bbq.  Plenty of Italy's fine red wines go great with grilled meats.  You also have the many choices of Italy's great whites as well as a large array of sparkling wines and rose.  So whether you're grilling up pork, sausage, steak, chicken or grilled vegetables there are options for everyone.

Let's take a look at what our Italian food and wine writers dish up for a pairing of Italian wines with summer bbq. Enjoy!
