Super Bowl = It's Wine Time!

The Super Bowl is a perfect time to stock up on beverages for your Super Bowl party. If you're a wine drinker (like us) then you will be stocking up on some of your favorite wines from Trader Joes. With dinner parties and lots of time spent with family and friends there are a host of reasons to stock up on more than just 1 bottle. Her are a few wines you can find at your local Trader Joe's which we think you might enjoy.

The best way we like to start a party (or morning mimosas) is with a light sparkling wine aka Champagne aka Cava. With its persistant bubbles, crisp taste, and smooth finish we recommend La Granja 360  as it is a great wine to pair with appetizers, smoked fish, or fruity deserts. Just like the duck on the label it will make you happy.

Half-time snacks and appetizers? Open a bottle of Zumaya Tempranillo. With its soft and delicious taste this wine pairs great with meats, cheeses, pasta and pizza. This wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser as it won a Gold Medal, 90 Points, at the  Los Angeles International Wine Competition 2013!

I've always enjoyed bringing the crockpot out before the game and tossing in a lamb or beef roast to slow cook all day for a delicious meal after the Super Bowl. I would recommend LA MANO Mencia Roble as it pairs great with red meats. Its deep red colors provide earth notes followed by tastes mulberry and blueberry and hints of spice. I like to decant this wine about an hour before serving to allow the fruits to open up.

I hope everyone has an amazing Super Bowl! Cheers!
