They write: "For Super Bowl parties, we're all about the flexibility of bubbles for their food-pairing prowess, and all about whites so you don't have to worry if your friends spill on your couch (or you spill on theirs!) during a dramatic moment in the game -- so a good Prosecco would probably be our first choice (even though we also love good cava, we just got back from Italy!)."
Their choice for a red? "In honor of Andrew's hometown team (the 49ers, which was one good kick away from this year's Super Bowl), he'd pour a lighter-bodied, fruity California Zinfandel with the vegetarian chili he's hoping to get around to making."
And their recommendations for some of the most popular Super Bowl fare:
"Chicken wings: sparkling wine; or riesling, syrah/shiraz or zinfandel.
Chili: Beaujolais, Cotes du Rhone, syrah/shiraz or zinfandel.
Guacamole: Champagne, unoaked chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, torrontes.
Nachos: sparkling wine, torrontes (with white meat), zinfandel (with red meat).
Pizza (pepperoni or sausage): barbera, Chianti, lighter-bodied zinfandel.
Popcorn: Champagne or other sparkling wine.
Fudge brownies and chocolate chip cookies: Banyuls, port or Pedro Ximenez sherry."
Thank you, Karen and Andrew.
