Only a few days left before the Super Bowl and, whether you love football or not, there is no better excuse enjoy good food and great wine! This year I am making German Soft Pretzel Sticks for the big game. (I adapted my recipe from Food and Wine Magazine and they are super good. Here is the link: http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/german-soft-pretzel-sticks)
Here are a couple of wine picks for under $20 that will pair perfectly with your pretzels and football!
Oregon makes outstanding Pinot Gris and this bottle is no exception. Notes of pear and peach are infused with tropical fruit. The finish is clean and refreshing! A lot of value for your money and a great wine to sip on Superbowl Sunday! (B+, 13% alcohol, $18, media sample)
This is one of my go to, easy to find Rosés I love to have on hand for guests. This Rosé of Pinot Noir is light bodied and has lively notes of strawberries and cherries. Crisp and refreshing, it is extremely food friendly and pairs really well with the pretzels and just about anything else! (B+, 12.5% alcohol, $11)
