Wine with Hamburger

Matching wine with Hamburger means matching wine with the condiments as well as the meat. Slices of tomato, pickles and either mustard or mayonaise can have a major effect on the overall taste of the burger. For a better match with wine, go light on the pickles. If you use a lot of tomato, you could benefit from a higher-acid wine like Pinot Noir or Sangiovese.

A great wine match for a 'Standard' hamburger is Zinfandel, with Syrah/Shiraz coming in close behind. Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Merlot are also good matches.
