Uncork the Best Wine for the Fourth of July

Uncork the Best Wine for the Fourth of July

It's almost Independence Day! Time to fire up the grill, dust off the lawn chairs, and raise a glass to celebrate. But what wine goes best with your favorite 4th of July foods? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

The 4th of July is more than just a day off with fireworks and barbecues. It's a celebration of American independence. It’s a day to remember the birth of our nation on July 4th, 1776, when the thirteen colonies declared their freedom from Great Britain. It's a time to reflect on the ideals of liberty and justice for all, and to come together as a community.

And what better way to celebrate than with a delicious barbecue and a glass (or two) of great wine?

Here's a quick guide to picking the perfect American-made wines for your backyard bash...

Fresh Wines For The Stars and Stripes


Start your celebration with a bang! Wines like the 2019 Golden West The Promise Pinot Noir Rosé Washington are light and refreshing, perfect for an afternoon gathering. They pair well with all kinds of appetizers, from chips and salsa to grilled veggies.


Chardonnay pairs beautifully with grilled chicken or fish with creamy sauces. The 2022 On Q Chardonnay Requiem Napa Valley offers a touch of oaky richness that complements these dishes, while its balanced acidity cuts through the creaminess. Imagine this wine alongside your perfectly grilled salmon with a lemon-dill sauce – a delightful harmony for your Independence Day celebration.

Reds For The Bold And The Blue

Pinot Noir for Burgers

This lighter-bodied red wine won't overpower the flavors of your juicy burger. It brings out the savory notes of the meat and complements smoky barbecue sauces beautifully. Pair it with 2022 Benmar Into the Fog Pinot Noir Willamette Valley.

Napa Cab for the Grill Master

The 2012 Chivalry Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley from Big Hammer Wines is a full-bodied crowd-pleaser. Rich fruit flavors and smooth tannins make it a perfect match for grilled meats and barbecue classics.

Bonus Tip: Don't forget dessert! For something chocolatey, try a bold red like the 2019 Old Vine Giannecchini Estate Blend.
