In addition to the beers, margaritas or any other beverage you're planning to serve at your 4th of July shindig, wine can be a great addition to the menu.
And, courtesy of San Mateo's local BevMo, Patch is bringing you the perfect wine pairings for some of the more popular, traditional items you may be throwing on the grill this year.
What's the best part? All of these wines are part of BevMo's special 5-cent holiday sale! Buy a bottle of any one of these wines or many more, and the second bottle is only 5 cents.
