Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Merlot, Malbec, and Zinfandel are great choices for Burger. Merlot will be perfectly adequate for a classic burger with standard toppings. Bolder toppings call for bolder wines, such as a malbec or peppery zinfandel. The NV Miranda Lambert Belle Sweet Merlot Wine with a 4.4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 26 dollars per bottle.

NV Miranda Lambert Belle Sweet Merlot Wine

This wine exhibits the attributes of Miranda Lambert. Simply put, it means the most beautiful. With her true southern raisin', she epitomizes southern hospitality and beauty while being a bit on the wild side. This sweet red is a mouthful of ripe cherry and raspberry that will tingle the palate. The finish is so silky smooth, it leaves you wanting more.
