football wines

Some good suggestions ... except they didn't provide a pairing for Double Dave's 'peproni' rolls. I'd nix their meatballs option (who serves meatballs anyway?) but stick with a Cabernet Sauvignon.

From Messina Hof Winery's blog:

Love your red or white wine but not sure what to drink with it during Football Season? Here are some great food pairings to have at your upcoming parties!

Spinach & Mushroom Puff Pastry – Merlot
Crab and Artichoke Dip – Chardonnay
Spicy Wings – Zinfandel or Shiraz
Meatballs – Cabernet Sauvignon
Even Classic Burgers – Pinot Noir
Chili – Zinfandel

Also noticeably absent: sparkling wines of any kind -- the very essence of a celebratory occasion -- particularly on gameday mornings, when mixed with orange juice or peach schnapps.

Regardless of one's beverage of choice, I'm lifting my glass to college football.

Gig'em.

  1. I think you should make the Spinach & Mushroom Puff Pastry for the tailgate.
