America has indulged in a love affair with burgers for some time. Let's look at the numbers: Ninety five percent of American adults say they 'like' (51 percent) or 'love' (44 percent) burgers*, and Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais-Villages is a perfect complement to that amour as the wine's fruitiness and soft tannins enhance the burger's flavors. Try this duo for your next summer date night or party.
