We know that beer and other hard liquors are a perfect match for barbecue and grilling adventures, but there is one type of alcohol that is often overlooked and that is Wine. Thanks to our new friend  Austin Hope, the winemaker of Hope Family Wines here are some tips on what to look for when you pair wine with BBQ
