Football and Wine – the Perfect Pairing

Football and Wine – the Perfect Pairing

Wine is the ultimate social drink. It’s the perfect thing to serve large crowds or more intimate parties. Wine can please just about every palate and it’s downright delicious too! As football season kicks into gear, we’re getting down to the important business of pairing classic tailgating standbys with a few of the wines currently leaving our cellar.

One may not immediately think that football and wine go together – but we’re here to prove this perception wrong! People come together around sports, sharing in the triumph of a great win, and commiserating with one another after losing. Football has the added benefit of enjoyment with great food – easy appetizers and comfort food that’s meant for sharing. What could go better with that than wine?


Spicy, meaty chili pairs well with a toasty, rich Cabernet Sauvignon with balanced, silky tannins and lots of red fruit.

Tangy, spicy and sweet hot wings or Buffalo wings call for sweetly effervescent Sparkling Wine to refresh the palate.

Creamy, silky guacamole pairs well with an equally creamy White Meritage with layers of orange, quince, apricot and mango.

Pizza with salty, savory toppings like cheese, olives, peppers or Italian sausage pairs perfectly with a chilled, dry, medium-bodied Rosé wine with light berry notes.

Any other ideas to serve wine with at a tailgate or football watching event?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
