Football’s biggest event is coming up this Sunday and while beer is typically considered the big game beverage of choice, we beg to differ! Read on to discover how you can pair Valley Road wines with two classic game day recipes.
Pair with: 2015 Destana
If you don’t like wings you’re not watching the big game. So much going on in your mouth at once, the tang of the vinegar sauce, the savory flavors of the meat and the creaminess of the bleu cheese dip. It takes the right wine to match with all this and we’ve got it: our 2015 Destana white blend. It’s a delicious combination of Viognier, Petit Manseng, and a touch of Chardonnay. It’s bright acidity is a match for the tangy vinegar sauce and with a touch of sweetness it can cool the sharp heat of those wings. Move over beer, Destana’s here!
Pair with: Fête Sparkling Viognier
Hosting or attending, what do you drink at a party? Well if you’ve got a pulse you drink a fun party wine like our sparkling Fête and, added bonus, it goes great with nachos. The crisp sparkling bubbles cut through the mouth coating cheese and leaves you ready for another bite. And Fête’s hint of sweetness nicely balances the spicy chili piled on those chips. Wow, we said it was a party. Fête and nachos; Go Team!
