Beyond Burger Reds

July 10, 2020

The Press Democract reports on the quiet revolution playing out on grills across America: plant-based burgers. According to Marketwatch, the meat-alternative burgers are on the rise, with most people who order them not even being vegetarians. Staying with the times, The Press Democrat conduced a blind tasting of wines that best pair with a Beyond Burger, which crowned the Gary Farrell 2017 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir winner.

The wine received high praise in its review, “crisp, fruit forward and savory. It has notes of Bing cherry, cranberry and mushroom. Balanced, with bright acidity, it has a lingering note of cherry on the finish.” The pinot works exceptionally well with the juicy and smoky flavors in the burger!
