Sunny Mondays Call for Shiraz and Outside-in Cheddar Sliders

Turn your Monday into a delicious feast with some red wine and cheese

Do rainy days and Mondays always get you down? One source reports that Mondays are actually the least likely day of the week for rain. It’s a perfect excuse to host a casual outdoor barbecue!

It is Monday after all, so avoid extra hassle and kitchen mess by grilling outside. To cut your hosting costs, prepare sliders that delight the cheese senses from the inside out. Sliders might be slight in the hand, but grilled meat is hefty on flavor and needs a wine that is equally big and bold. Shiraz is both these things plus a perfect complement to the sharp Cheddar cheese, which no one will forget — inside or out.

Two wines we recommend:

SCHILD ESTATE Shiraz 2009 (Barossa Valley, Australia) $21.95

CHAPOUTIER (Australia), Tournon Victorian Shiraz "Mathilda" 2010 (Victoria, Australia) $14.95
