Red, White and Wine: 4 Wines Perfect for the 4th of July

Pair those sparklers with sparkling wine, sip some Rosé on Independence Day, and savor a celebratory red or white while clad in red, white and blue.

We checked in with our wine-loving staff at Stave Wine Cellar at Pebble Beach for some refreshing recommendations to pair with your 4th of July festivities. Stave Wine Manager Jeff Birkemeier found four perfect wines for your upcoming barbecues — all available for $25. (You’re going to need buy a few bottles for your cookout, right?)

The Albariño, Rosé and Zinfandel are all American, while we got a little help from the French (just like in the Revolutionary War) in choosing an affordable Sparkling Wine.

Explore these choices and many more at Stave, where you can enjoy a creative menu overflowing with more than 200 specialty bottles, plus 30 wines by the glass, and thoughtfully themed flights designed to help you discover fun new wines. Or pop into Stave for our monthly wine classes and trivia nights. Cheers!
