Spicy Catfish and Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel are Southern Soulmates

Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel

For blackened, spicy Southern cooking, turn to the Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel.

You could also grab a bottle of sparkling and not at all be wrong or disappointed – but there is something outstanding about this Zin that cozies up to soul food.

The blackened catfish from Tupelo Honey has a spicy roundhouse kick that compliments the Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel in the same way Nathaniel Ratecliff and the Night Sweats compliments an evening in sweats with a glass of it. Or three. Which, hypothetically, you may need after an outdoor dining experience with extreme gusts of wind blowing menus, napkins, and your sanity up in the air.

*we had tupelo honey to go after a disasterous attempt to dine on the patio with our toddler + 7 year old on a windy afternoon so we boxed up our dinner.

    What an incredible looking meal! I’ve have to try it the next time I’m at Tupelo. I’ve had that wine too and love it and the price point.

      Tupelo has nailed the farm-fresh menu – I know y’all are used to it in Asheville, but we don’t have many restaurants like it here in Myrtle Beach! The wine is excellent… a good one to keep in the house!
