When grilling, I always aspire to the type of intuitive outdoor experience Russell Moore and Allison Hopelain describe in their excellent book This is Camino. Equipped with only some well-seasoned wood, a few rudimentary yet ideally-suited implements, quality ingredients, and a bottle of wine or two, I’d conjure up a brilliant, fire-kissed meal that my entire family would rapturously devour, pausing only to effusively praise my grilling mastery. Unfortunately, the reality is more along the lines of me preventing my four-year-old from grabbing the red-hot Weber with both hands while trying not to incinerate the hot dogs. A man can dream, though. Whatever your grilling setup, there’s bound to be something in this collection of wines for you. There are sparklers, whites, and rosés if grilled seafood or veggies are on the menu. Lighter reds from Beaujolais or Chinon, served slightly chilled in tumblers, are great with burgers and dogs. If steaks, chops, or something you hauled out of the backcountry are what’s for dinner, hearty reds from Fitou or Piedmont will serve you well. The point, though, isn’t to overthink it that much—all you need is quality on the grill and in your glass. Gather some friends and family, head out to the backyard, get the coals going and find what works for you.
We are able to ship wines exclusively from this curated collection. We hope to expand our selection of available wines in the coming days, all while maintaining a safe work environment for our employees.
Here at Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant we don’t believe in selling anything mediocre, and we would certainly not put our name on a wine we didn’t believe in. So our values are just that, wines that are full of value and quality.
Frédéric and Daniel Brunier are the fourth generation of their family to farm the land of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In recent decades, they have brought their intricate knowledge of the various terroirs of the southern Rhône to new heights through the expansion of the holdings. Their properties represent a vast variation of soil types, climatic conditions, and grape varieties.
What other grape has the versatility to pair with raw oysters, fish tacos, ripe and creamy chèvre, or Thai basil fried rice with equal aplomb? Want something stony, smoky, and shatteringly crisp? Check. How about silky, honeyed, and chock-full of sweet/tart fruit? You got it.
