Fire Up The Grill!

We are here to help you knock it out of the park at your next Summer cookout. Check out two of our favorite big reds that would go great with nearly anything off the grill- Etta’s Blend and Upper Ridge Malbec. Both would be great with this Flat Iron Steak recipe. Master the grill this Summer with this great recipe + wine pairing!
