Beaujolais Nouveau Wine

This grilled Greek Turkey Burger recipe produces a nice juicy burger. While most people think that poultry should be paired with a white wine, I prefer a chilled light red wine. A Beaujolais Nouveau is a young fresh red wine that is meant to be enjoyed young. Since it’s not complex, offers light fruit flavors and is a little dry, it melds well with this pasta dish!
