HOW TO SCORE WITH WINE & FOOD THIS SUPER BOWL!
Super Bowl LI is right around the corner. As you start to make your shopping list for delicious appetizers, I’m sure you’ve thought of all the classics…pigs in a blanket, hot wings, nachos, buffalo chicken dip, potato chips, and more! We’re here to help you amp up your Super Bowl spread with the ultimate Super Bowl wine and food pairings. Find your favorite bites and see which wine goes best! We’ve even given you a white wine and a red wine pairing so there is something for every palate.
1. Hot Wings/Buffalo Chicken Dip
These two hot and spicy dishes will light your tastebuds on fire! You need a sweet white and a light-bodied red to alleviate the heat. Our wine picks: Vidal Blanc and Farm Table Red.
2. Pigs in a Blanket
Pigs in a blanket are the perfect finger food that are bound to be a huge crowd pleaser. The warm, doughy croissant wrapped around the savory sausage pairs well with our two flagship wines: Farm Table White and Farm Table Red
3. Nachos/7 Layer Dip
Nachos with meat, cheese, and beans or 7-layer dip will turn your Super Bowl gathering into a fiesta. Classic 7-layer dip includes: refried beans, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, cheddar cheese, black olives, and ground beef (jalapeño chiles can be added if you want to spice it up. Our wine picks: Albariño and Cabernet Franc.
4. Spinach & Artichoke Dip
This creamy dip is a combination of spinach, artichoke hearts, parmesan cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, and garlic, and can be served with tortilla chips, pita chips, or carrots/celery sticks. Our wine picks: Petit Manseng and Farm Table Red.
In my opinion, pizza pairs with every varietal of wine, but if you really want to make sure you are pairing like a pro, pair your chees pizza with Farm Table White and your meat pizza with Meritage.
Well, now that we’ve given you everything you need to put together the perfect Super Bowl shopping list, you can start deciding which appetizers you want to make and wine you need to stock up on. If you’re like the majority of the football fans out there, you won’t be able to pick just one and you’ll have ‘em all!
Enjoy your Super Bowl LI party!
