How To Pair Wine And Super Bowl Foods

Regardless of whether your team made it to the big game or not, celebrating the Super Bowl is so much more than just about football. It’s also about getting together with family and friends and indulging in some delicious foods and snacks.

Traditionally these foods are served with beer, but if you’re more of a wine drinker, you’re in luck. Below you’ll find how to pair wine with popular Super Bowl foods.


Nachos + Riesling

An off-dry Riesling with a hint of sweetness offsets the spiciness and bold flavors nachos carry, making these two an ideal pair.

buffalo wings

Buffalo Wings + Gewürztraminer

To balance the spice and butter of the buffalo sauce, a floral, off-dry Gewürztraminer is the perfect wine to pair with these wings.

spinach artichoke dip

Spinach Artichoke Dip + Sauvignon Blanc

To cut through the creaminess of this dip, try something dry with acidity, but limited oak like a Sauvignon Blanc. 

potato skins

Potato Skins + Sparkling Wine

The effervescence and citrus flavors of sparkling wine is the perfect way to balance the fatty, salty, bold flavors potato skins carry.

slider burgers

Sliders + Syrah

The plum and blackberry flavors with hints of earthy spice in Syrah round out each bite of the smoky tones in a slider.


Hummus + Chardonnay

An unoaked Chardonnay that has a high acidity complements the garlicky and lemony hummus we all enjoy to break up all the fatty foods we eat on this day.


Guacamole + Sauvignon Blanc

This citrusy, fatty dip needs a wine that will brighten the citrus of the lime but cut through the oils of the avocado. A Sauvignon Blanc makes the flavors of this dip pop!

mozzarella sticks

Mozzarella Sticks + Sparkling Wine

The bubbles of a sparkling wine cut through the fattiness of a fried mozzarella stick balancing the two in harmony.
