Wine Lovers, Rejoice…Here Is Our Guide to Wine Pairings with Game Day Foods!
The 51st Super Bowl is just days away! This Sunday, the Patriots and Falcons will face off at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The real question is, are you going to a Super Bowl party to actually watch the game or to indulge in savory, mouthwatering, finger licking good comfort food? We’re going for the food, of course.
Typically when people mention Super Bowl Sunday, you immediately envision a decked out table covered in football themed appetizers and beverages. For the food, there will be an endless amount of spicy, salty, and sweet appetizers to satisfy all of your taste buds. Wings, pizza, burgers, hotdogs, dips, chips, and dessert are likely to be served.
As for the drinks, beer is usually what people wash their food down with. But, what about our wine drinkers? A wine-o needs their favorite beverage too! Wine drinkers may find it difficult to pair wines with typical game day grub. Well have no fear, we are here to help!
Here is a list of the best wines to pair with football foods!
Cheese & Guacamole Dip
Let’s be honest, you can pair cheese with just about any wine. So why not pair a sparkling wine like JCB Cremant de Bourgogne Brut 21 NV with a cheesy dip or better yet a guacamole dip? You cannot go wrong with these duos.
Nachos are delicious, especially when they’re decked out with toppings like beans, salsa, meat, sour cream, and most importantly CHEESE. Again, sparkling wine reigns supreme in this food pairing. Try, MUMM Napa Brut Prestige and your taste buds will be thanking you!
Burgers and Hotdogs
If you pair a red wine with steak, you can definitely drink a bold red wine, like Raymond Vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley with a freshly grilled burger or hotdog.
Mild and Spicy Wings
What is a Super Bowl party without spicy food? Enjoy a bunch of spicy wings and sip on a sweeter, and juicier varietal like Dr. Loosen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Auslese Riesling (Mosel) to balance out the heat level.
Cookies, Brownies, and Chocolate Covered Fruits
If you haven’t noticed yet, sparkling wine is a versatile and food friendly pairing especially with chocolate covered fruits but whatever dessert is present, sparkling wine will most likely be a safe and delicious choice.
Wine enthusiasts, we hope this wine guide will help you enjoy your Super Bowl weekend to the fullest. May your favorite team win!
