Whether you live and breathe football or just show up for the food, everyone can be a Super Bowl champion with these Super Bowl party pairings. Wondering about your best wine matches?
The best rivalries are between two strong opponents. Malbec and Shiraz are in the starting lineup when taking on a grilled barbecue wing. A big bold red wine really has what it takes to stand up to barbecue’s spicy sweetness.
Perfect Matchup: Malbec, Shiraz
When it comes to red meat, we like to keep it simple: red meats pair well with red wines. Red wines tend to be high in tannins, which cling to rich fatty acids and cleanse the palate so that you can enjoy every bite like it’s your first.
Perfect Matchup: Cabernet, Pinot Noir
A little heated after that fumble? Take a time-out and grab something that tastes as salty as you’re feeling. Pairing this with a Champagne or Riesling will cut back on the salt and sweeten your attitude before heading back onto the field.
Perfect Matchup: Champagne, Riesling
Whether sprayed from a can or curated in the finest dairy farm, cheese is the real MVP of the wine pairing game. While red wine is the fan favorite for pairing with hard cheese, we recommend a light white wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc for a real taste bud touchdown.
Perfect Matchup: Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc
