I love this healthy recipe for burgers with lots of flavor and a twist on the traditional. These would make a great summer luncheon feature as well as something different and healthy for a family dinner. The suggested wine pairing of the Mariana Vineyard 2016 Verdelho just makes my mouth water as the crisp citrus and fruity characters will cut through the creamy yogurt and mayonnaise sauce to blend all the flavors impeccably.

This delicious recipe for Greek Chicken Burgers with Lemon Pepper Yogurt Sauce pairs perfectly with the Mariana Vineyard 2016 Verdelho.
Our Mariana Vineyard 2016 Verdelho comes from South Eastern Australia. This wine has intense aromas of lemon, lychee and apricot. There is a firm attack in the mouth with citrus aromas. After this initial attack, mango and pineapple appear toward the finish. This is a crisp, aromatic wine with good acidity in the finish.Learn more about the benefits of the WineShop At Home Artisan Collection Wine Club.
