It is important to think about the cut of steak you’ll be having for dinner. Leaner cuts such as sirloin or filet mignon will work best with light to medium-bodied red wines. If you are having a fattier cut, such as porterhouse or ribeye, you will want a bold red with high tannins.

If you make the patty the star of your burger and have minimal toppings, a red meat-friendly wine like a cabernet sauvignon works well. If you are making a big, bold burger, try a malbec. It has a more robust flavor to stand up to all your toppings! Want a white wine with your burger? Try a chardonnay. It will work well with most toppings and the acidity helps cut through the fattiness of the meat and cheese.
- Cabernet Sauvignon – Landscape
- Malbec – Lexicon
- Chardonnay – Simi
Pot roast is a classic, humble dish that is usually flavorful without overwhelming sauce. You want a wine that is big and bold enough to meet the full flavors of the beef.
