A bold combination such as this is a perfect complimentary wine for flavorful seafood dishes. Some of the best pairings include marinated salmon, seasoned seafood dishes, shrimp, and mussels.

Ribs are a fan favorite at cookouts and family gatherings throughout the summer months and also a hit during football season. Because of the bold and tangy taste of the BBQ sauce slathered on the ribs, a bottle of refreshing yet acidic wine is necessary. Redneck Vineyards’ Catas “Trophy” Wife wine has notes of earthy spices and ripe fruits that cleanse the palate between bites of decadent ribs. The notes in this particular Sangiovese also merge well with other meats dressed in BBQ sauce, along with roasted poultry.

Redneck Vineyards’ Catas “Trophy” Wife wine is made for casual, everyday pairings. One of our favorite combinations is a classic pepperoni pizza and a glass of this earthy red wine. The classic pizza sauce and the subtle spiciness of the pepperonis marry exceptionally well with the sweet oak and dark cherry notes of the Sangiovese. As an added bonus, the flavors pair equally well with all dishes that feature a red sauce, like spaghetti and meatballs and most other Italian dishes. Keep in mind, however, that you should pair the wine with the sauce instead of the pasta if serving other Italian dishes. For example, an alfredo sauce over pasta creates a vastly different flavor profile than a red sauce. In these cases, opt for a bottle of white wine or a light red variety. The versatility of Catas “Trophy” Wife wine makes it a great wine to keep on hand for impromptu gatherings or last-minute pizza orders.
