Regarding the cheddar hamburger, its popularity can be explained by a combination of basic products: meat, tomato, cheese, salad and onions. For wine, head to the Rhône Valley, with a Côtes-du-Rhône red with controlled power and beautiful notes of red and black fruits. Sometimes you can even detect peppery notes.

You can also vary the pleasures and replace the beef with poultry. Change of direction for the wine, we therefore move on to a white, on the Bordeaux side, with a Graves, which will be perfect with its power and its citrus notes.

And for those who don’t thrive with meat, we’re trying to make a veggie or vegan burger, garnished with a tasty plant-based steak. As for wine, we go back to the north-east, to Alsace, and choose a Riesling, mineral, powerful and round.
