Cheers to our Top Regional Semifinalists!
Chef’s hat off to another great year of delicious burgers! Since 1990, our Sutter Home Build a Better Burger contest has produced some of the best burger recipes out there. We plan to continue that tradition for years to come.
We all still believe that burgers are best accompanied by a glass of Sutter Home wine. Therefore, we can’t wait to award the grand prize winner, our top chef, very soon.
Like every year, we are honored to present to you our Build a Better Burger semifinalists with their recipes and Sutter Home wine pairings. Hope you savor them as much as we do.
