Recipe Thursdays: Beef Barbacoa with Bertrand Galbrun "Antidote" Grolleau

Labor Day is the ultimate transitional holiday. While we bask in the last vestiges of summer’s golden sun, we also welcome the cool, brisk breezes of fall. From a cuisine standpoint, it’s the perfect opportunity to check off those last few summer dishes you’ve been wanting to try, and also a good excuse to start experimenting with early autumn recipes. It’s a time to fire up the grill and pack away a tasty lunch for the beach, then for supper tuck into the coziness of oven-roasted starchy squashes and slow cooked meats, like this slow cooker beef barbacoa recipe from Food & Wine. It’s the best of both worlds.

You’ll want to choose a wine this Labor Day weekend that is refreshing for daytime, but can stand up to heartier evening dishes as well. A truly transitional wine perfect for the occasion is Bertrand Galbrun’s "Antidote" Grolleau. Low in alcohol and wonderful served chilled, Galbrun’s "Antidote" is a unique alternative to rosé for your next outdoor grilling party. Likewise, when brought to room temperature, the stewed plum and earthy, savory finish on this wine pair beautifully with spicy beef barbacoa.
