INFOGRAPHIC: These Are the Best Wines to Pair With Grilled Meats

We’re just gonna come out and say it: NOTHING beats a good summertime grill. With the weather getting warmer by the day, we are itching to fire up our grills and sink our teeth into some savory delights. We’re psyched to try out some new meals, from pulled pork recipes to vegan grill recipes. But what to pair with our favorite grilled meats? Wine, of course. Here are the perfect pairings you should consider serving around the grill this summer.


Obviously, you’re going to notice some trends here. Super-light meats such as white fish and grilled chicken are going to pair best with a light, crispy Sauvignon Blanc. Meanwhile, poultry and fish that’s just a tad heavier — think salmon or pork chops — is going to taste amazing alongside an oaky, slightly more buttery white wine, like Chardonnay. In the middle (both in terms of meat heaviness and wine color) is the delicious tuna + Rosé pairing.

For all the red wine lovers out there, your best meat choice is clearly going to be a darker meat. Pinot Noir, particularly a fruity vintage, will go great with ground turkey. Duck will pair nicely with a good Zinfandel, and steaks and burgers are going to be perfect with a bombastic, highly flavorful wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Grenache.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
