Brooke Lewis-Slamkova | Winder, Georgia

Luscious Peach and Pork Burger | Wine Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc

This playful burger brings the flavor… all of them! A unique blend of Italian and hot sausage creates a burger with a little sweet, sour, spicy, creamy and savory. You’ll fall in love with each bite. Pair with Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc for the perfect summertime experience.


Pamela Gelsomini | Wrentham, Massachusetts

Mediterranean Lamb, Feta & Olive Burgers with Two Pepper Slaw & Feta Tzatziki | Wine Pairing: Pinot Noir

These Mediterranean-inspired lamb burgers are packed with intense flavors. Feta cheese, olives and mint are woven through the ground lamb, which is kept moist from an infusion of sautéed mushrooms and onions. The burgers are topped with a bright and crunchy slaw made with bell peppers, basil and mint. A creamy feta tzatziki sauce envelopes the burgers on top and bottom and the whole concoction is hugged between two toasty mini-naan breads. Perfectly paired with a glass of Sutter Home Pinot Noir, which also makes an appearance in the patties, this burger is a Mediterranean flavor bomb in every single bite.

French Onion Soup Burger | Wine Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon

The deliciousness of French onion soup incorporated into a juicy burger!


Michaela Rosenthal | Woodland Hills, California

White Barbecue Sauced Veal & Pork Burgers With Fried Green Tomatoes | Wine Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc

White barbecue sauce is my new favorite for summer grilling. The fried green tomato on the burger makes for a tangy, crunchy element to compliment the juicy burgers.
