Chop-Shop-Is-Made-to-Pair-with-BBQ

There’s nothing like pairing a cold one with a slab of meat fresh off the grill, but this summer you have another option: Chop Shop Cabernet Sauvignon. Made by Ryan Zotovich for Winc, Chop Shop is a juicy, complex, full-bodied Cab made to pair with barbecue dishes and the umami of smoked meats. In other words, it leverages Zotovich’s love for smoking meat and his reputation as the go-to guy for brisket and BBQ ribs in Santa Barbara to create a wine that’s a great alternative to a cold one. The wine is described as having notes of plum, red cherry and spice with some dark, complex nuances thanks to the touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

This versatile, single-person fireplace emits a cozy warmth whenever you need it to, while also being doubly useful as a safe cooking surface for small items like skewers and s’mores. Since it takes just 5 ounces of isopropyl rubbing alcohol fuel for roughly 50 minutes of burn time, you’re set for the foreseeable future with just the medicine cabinet staples. It doesn’t hurt that it also looks great.
