Serving wine at cookouts can be tricky. There are all sorts of potentially challenging elements to contend with: spicy barbecue sauce, vinegar-y dressing-doused pasta and vegetable salads...you get the idea. Then there's the matter of the blazing hot temperatures outside -- no one wants to (or really should be) downing glasses of anything with sky-high alcohol levels. Your goal should be to score bottles that can work with a grill-heavy menu but also please peeps who like to drink their wine with...well, more wine. With that in mind, we give you four fantastic, made-in-the-USA wines to help you celebrate Independence Day.
