This one is for the love of football and yes, the half time show. We’ve paired up with our friends at Gay Lea Foods to create 2 Big Game party packs Super Bowl LVI on February 13th.
Graffiti Cabernet Sauvignon and Graffiti Pinot Grigio teamed up with some Nothing But Cheese and artisanal sausage will have you snack and sip ready for game time with our Big Game Party Pack 750mL
Pinot Grigio and Merlot 3L Bag In Box score points with Nothing But Cheese and artisanal sausage with our Big Game Party Pack 3L Bag in Box.
Looking for more Super Bowl wine and cheese pairings? Try these recipes for some classic game time fare:
Poutine- pairs well with a low tannin red, try Pinot Noir VQA.
Nachos- Graffiti Pinot Grigio would be a nice refreshing wine that would clear the palate.
Chili with Cheddar Cheese – Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve VQA. You want a wine with a little more body and tannins to keep up with the flavours of the chili and cheese.
Potato Skins- Chardonnay Non-oaked VQA for similar reasons to the Nachos.
Mozzarella Sticks with Curry Dip – Lighthouse Riesling VQA as it will cleanse the saltiness of the mozzarella sticks and the Riesling goes great with the spice of the curry dip.
Jackfruit Tacos with Vegan cheese – Cabernet Franc VQA is a nice, medium bodied which will match the flavour well.
