Wondering what wine to pour on game day. We think there is one clear winner that will add some sparkle to your football party, and that is sparkling wine. Our favorite, Champagne, will pair nicely with all your football food and the Dr. Dre/Snoop Dog/Eminem half time show!

Fries (our favorite)
Ribs (hello Bubble-que)
Sausage and Peppers
Not a sparkling fan? The next runner-up is pinot noir for second most game day pairings. This light and highly versatile wine, pairs nicely with most party fare. Here's a list of tasty treats that go nice with this red:
The majority of the list we gave for sparkling (except fries, poppers and guacamole)
