The dining scene in Door County often offers more than a great meal, especially at Gibraltar Grill in Fish Creek where diners can enjoy live music from the patio four nights a week. With plenty of room on the lawn, you can bring chairs and hang out before or after dinner while you enjoy drinks from the outdoor bar and a variety of music from live bands and musicians. Offering a wide selection of menu items sure to please from steaks and seafood to pasta and appetizers to sandwiches and salads, Gibraltar Grill also has a kids menu as well as a Gluten-Free Menu! Bring your best friend for supper too – Gibraltar Grill’s patio is dog friendly, welcoming well-behaved dogs on leashes. All performance begin at 7:30 p.m. with the exception of their Gibraltar Music Festival (End of Summer Party III) on Sunday, August 31, which runs from 2-10 p.m. and includes music from Cookee, One Too Many, and Big Mouth & The Power Tool Horns!
Question: What kind of wine should I bring to a BBQ?
July has come to Door County, Wisconsin and the grills are out! Paul Santoriello, Winemaker and Production Director at Door Peninsula Winery, and Door County Chefs ‘Ask a Chef‘ contributor, has some fantastic advice on finding the perfect wine for your next backyard BBQ:
After suffering through what feels like the worst winter in 30 years, Wisconsinites are anxious to get back outside – and that means lighting the grill. Whether they burn charcoal or gas, people here have a longstanding love affair with outdoor cooking. Though brats and burgers remain the go-to grill meats, many backyard chefs are upping the ante with steaks, ribs, chops and fish. Here are a few tips for making the most of those pairings.
Pairing food and wine is really simple and about personal taste, but there are a few helpful practices to make your meal better, says Paul Santoriello, head winemaker at Door Peninsula Winery.
“Lighter meats (like chicken and fish) tend to call for white and lighter red wines, while traditional red wines are a natural pairing for red meats and smoke flavors off the grill.”
