Say Oui to National Hot Dog Day! Today we celebrate the best hot dog variation in existence, Chicago Hot Dogs — yeah, we said it.

Nate Redner, Beverage Director at LEYE supplies his favorite, unexpected wine pairing: Beaujolais. “High acidity red wines that have fresh, tart fruit – such that of Beaujolais – complement salty and spiced foods very well!

Hot Dog cheers!

Grab a bottle of your favorite Beaujolais, put a slight chill on that bottle, and whip out all of the necessities for a Chicago Hot Dog: poppy seed bun, neon relish, celery salt, onions, pickles, tomatoes, mustard, sport peppers (and, never ketchup).
