Cheers to Red Wine Day: Elevate Your Grill Game with Vino!

Ah, summer: when the scent of grilling fills the air. This Red Wine Day, we're not just sipping our favorite vinos, we're cooking with them too! Let's dive into some knockout red wine marinades, ready to elevate everything from your juiciest steaks to those garden-fresh veggies. 


The Power of the Pour

Beyond the glass, red wine works wonders in the culinary world. Its acidic nature makes it perfect for tenderizing, while its rich bouquet of flavors marries well with herbs and spices. Ready to fire up that grill?

1. Classic Red Wine and Herb Marinade

Spot on for: Steaks and Lamb Chops

  • Whisk together 1 cup of Merlot, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 tsp each of chopped rosemary and thyme, and salt & pepper to taste. Marinade your meats for a couple of hours, then grill to perfection.

2. Spicy Red Wine Citrus Twist

Brilliant for: Chicken and Pork

  • Mix 1 cup Malbec, the juice of 2 oranges, 1 tbsp chili flakes, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 3 tbsp honey, and 2 minced garlic cloves. Let your chicken or pork soak in this zesty concoction for a few hours before grilling.

3. Smokey Red Wine Veggie Glaze

Top choice for: Grilled Veggies

  • Blend 1 cup Pinot Noir, 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp smoked paprika, 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp sea salt. Toss your veggies in this smoky mix for about an hour, then fire them up on the grill.
