Great tasting, good value wines that are perfect partners for BBQ
Picking the right wine can really help take a BBQ to the next level. With this in mind, Beefsteak Club offers a delicious range of wines perfect for pairing with grilled meats and barbecued food. The BBQ selection includes Beefsteak Club Malbec – the wine that’s ‘made for meat’ and is the ideal partner for steak; Beefsteak Club Malbec Rosé – perfect for pairing with chicken, pork and chargrilled vegetables; and Beefsteak Club Sauvignon Blanc which is an excellent match for seafood.
Beefsteak Club wine was created with steak and wine lovers in mind and honours the dining clubs of the 18th and 19th centuries, which celebrated the beefsteak as a symbol of liberty and prosperity. Today, the wines are positioned as the ideal wines to share with friends while entertaining outdoors.
“There’s an increased importance attached to outdoor living and entertaining which has been accelerated by our recent lockdown experiences,” says Susannah Greenstreet, Beefsteak Club’s marketing manager:
“BBQ cooking is a big part of this, with UK consumers becoming more creative with their recipes for the grill and choosing to elevate the occasion and flavours with a great glass of wine. Beefsteak Club is the perfect choice of wine for BBQ lovers, with a range designed to pair well with meat and grilled food, and all priced at under £10.”
“With a heatwave forecast this spring and an extra bank holiday for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, 2022 is set to be another sizzling year for Britain’s BBQs.”
Beefsteak Club Malbec and Malbec Rosé are sourced from high-altitude vineyards Mendoza, Argentina’s premium wine growing regions at the edge of the Andes. Warm sunny days and cool nights give the wines great freshness and elegance.
Beefsteak Club Sauvignon Blanc is from the coastal zone of Aconcagua in Chile, where the proximity to the Pacific Ocean provides cool nights, morning mists and sea breezes. These conditions help to achieve slow-ripening grapes, resulting in a wine with crisp natural acidity, complex flavours and an elegant minerality.
