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.
