An essential part of a Southern California summer is a bonfire. We have gloriously beautiful days and slightly chilly nights so, after a long day at the beach, we had over to a fire pit in the sand. Of course we roast hot dogs and corn on the cob over the fire but my favorite summer bonfire fare is a warm, gooey s’more!
There are plenty of wines that pair well with s’mores but the best match I have found is Tawny Port. One Tawny Port I really enjoy is Churchill’s 10 Years Old Tawny Port. I think the nut, caramel, and fig flavors in the wine go really well graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. Plus this port offers a great value for the price ($30). So get to the nearest bonfire (a grill will work too!) and try out this pairing. It is a summertime classic!
