Super Bowl XLV Team Color Wines & Food Pairings

As we hunker down tomorrow for an exciting Super Bowl XLV with our arch rival cheese head neighbors Green Bay Packers against the favored 3x Super Bowl Pittsburgh Steelers, what food and drink will you have during this 4 hour battle? While most of you may think beer first, there are many wines that pair very well with Super Bowl fare such as New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with Nachos, Gruner Veltliner (aka Gruvee) with salted chips and nuts, Oregon Pinot Noir with thin crust peperoni pizza, Prosecco with popcorn, Viognier with spicy Buffalo Wings, Tempranillo with Burgers & Brats! To make it even that much more festive, we’ve selected wines that in in the shades of the Super Bowl’s team’s colors (I know…it’s a stretch!).
