Wines that are perfect with your favorite grilled vegetables

Grilled Corn

Nothing says summer like fresh, sweet corn on the cob. I tend to gorge myself early in the season on simple steamed corn, but as the summer progresses, I become more adventuresome with my maize. Lime and chile grilled corn is addictive and fast becoming a late summer staple for me.

This is a Sauvignon Blanc friendly dish so don't fight it! Zesty and lightly herbal, it's a super complement for the best of the variety. New Zealand is of course a convenient fall back for this dish, but don't overlook Chilean Sauvignon Blanc!

Two to try:

Matetic Eq Sauvignon Blanc - Chilean Sauvignon seems to tend toward a bit of a leaner style than many others with bright, transparent fruit.

Te Mata Estate Woodthorpe Sauvignon Blanc - Go full blast with this tropical-fruited example of Sauvignon Blanc that manages to remain crisp and refreshing.

    It is delicious dusted lightly with cinnamon, olive oil, sea salt once on each side during the grilling process. Yummmm!

    As a vegetarian, I've been waiting for this article since I found this site! I'll definitely be trying some of these pairings, especially the ones for portobello caps, which I absolutely love.

    Sylvaner and Savatiano? How about something that's available in our local markets? Preferably something made in our local wineries? I'm in Oregon, so I'm thinking Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, or Chardonnay. Maybe Pinot Noir rose.

    OK, I'll follow up on this theme with a couple more articles, perhaps something based around vegetarian autumn dishes and one paring vegetarian dishes with wines you can find locally!
