Armchair quarterbacks are in position and the game plan is set. The buffet table is ready on the side line and the drinks are chilling.
One drink to have on hand for this big game day, or any day for that matter, is a bright and bubbly sparkling wine. It's such a fun way to celebrate with all those bubbles.
Many of us forget, or perhaps never realized that this is a food friendly, versatile wine that is always appropriate, even on Game Day!
The sparklers have bright acidity and the bubbles are refreshing on our palates. The lower alcohol wine doesn't compete with the food making it a wine perfect for game day menus including the ever popular salty snacks and fried foods that we enjoy.
Sparkling wines are produced in many wine-making regions around the world. Some popular sparklers are labled as Cava (from Spain), Cremant (France), and Italian Prosecco. Many American sparkling wines are produced in California and the northwest, as well as many other regions across the country.
They are inexpensive and very affordable. Keep an extra bottle on hand for any time you want to celebrate. And don't forget Valentine's Day is coming soon as well and a sparkling wine will be perfect........!
