Super Bowl Food & Wine Guide

Can anyone really watch the Super Bowl without snacks and booze? Although beer dominates the commercials, it doesn’t have to dominate your party menu. Here are 10 of our favorite apps paired perfectly with a few of our favorite wines.

Suggestion: Cave Amadeu Brut, NV - $22
Brazilian Traditional Method Sparkling
Sparkling wine pairs well with just about grab a bottle and go nuts loading up those nachos!

Suggestion: La Collina Quaresimo Lambrusco Dell'Emilia - $20
Dry sparkling Italian red
No, not all Lambrusco is cheap, sweet, low quality wine... and if that's your impression, you MUST give it another chance! This bottle is the absolute perfect pair with pizza.

Suggestion: Jonc Blanc Rosé Pet Nat - $22
Off dry, lightly sparkling wine from France
That hint of sweetness will help offset the heat of your wings and compliment the flavors. GO HAM!

Suggestion: La Fermina Rosé - $15 or Christina Rosé - $22
Dry, fruit forward rosés
These aromatic rosés have the acid & fruitiness to cut the fat and the spices of the hotdog/sausage.

Suggestion: Jean Dauvissat Chablis 'Vendange' - $28.99
Bright, crisp and refreshing
Potato skins are usually loaded with fatty, salty delicious toppings. The fresh, bright acidity of Chablis is the perfect compliment.

Suggestion: Tegernseerhof T26 Federspiel Grüner Veltliner - $20
Zesty green pear + Herbal notes
Need a wine that pairs with veggies and loads of cheese? Look no further than Grüner.

Suggestion: Scotty Boy! El Sandweeech! - $28.50
Glou Glou
The label basically says it all. This crushable juicy red with virtually no tannin is screaming for a sandwich.

Suggestion: Domaine Bott Crozes-Hermitage Syrah - $49
Peppery, Spicy, Grippy Tannins
The spicy, weightiness of the wine matches the spicy meatiness of the dish. Match made in heaven.

Suggestion: Domaine Guion Bourgueil Cuveé Domaine - $22
Classic Cabernet Franc
The juicy, peppery and baking spice notes from Cab Franc compliment the sweet and savoriness of the BBQ sauce without overpowering. YUM!

Suggestion: Sandy Cove New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc - $19 
Classic, Aromatic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
The grassy, vegetal qualities of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc align perfectly with the flavors of fresh veggies.
