It's football season, finally! It's time for sweaters and tailgating and mulled wine - okay, maybe not quite yet, especially if you're here in Austin with us. If that's the case, we're all just heaving a collective sigh of relief that we can simply go outside again. Regardless of temperatures though, we are die-hard football fans, especially when it comes to the Longhorns! And we know everyone else across the country is as excited as we are for this season.
So what to eat while you watch? We've got you covered with our ultimate football and wine pairing guide. Let's tap in and eat!
BOXT Football and Wine Pairings to Live By
BOXT Profiles One, Two or Nine (or a crisp, clean pinot gris, dry rosé or good dry, medium-bodied Chardonnay)
These will pair with just about any of your favorite salty appetizers like nuts, fries, chips and dip or salsa and crudité platters. Buttery popcorn and hummus love Profile Two. If you're going full charcuterie board, any of our reds will love this pairing.
FINGER FOOD AND APPETIZERS
BOXT Profiles Three (white) or Four (red) (or a riesling or gewurztraminer or pinot noir)
What's a good football watch party without wings and spice? Serve these wines with wings or spicy foods like chili, chili dogs, jalapeño poppers, hot meatballs and sriracha spring rolls.
GRILLED RED MEAT
BOXT Profiles FourFive and Five (or malbec, merlot, syrah or cabernet sauvignon)
Steak, hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, lamb chops, bacon wrapped anything, sliders, they all will love a good full red.
GRILLED WHITE MEATS, FISH AND VEGGIES
BOXT Profiles One, Two and Four (or pinot gris, chardonnay or malbec, merlot or syrah)
BBQ chicken will love Profiles One and Four and pair your white fish with the white wines - though Profile Four will go nicely with a fattier fish like salmon or tuna.
THE SWEET STUFF
Profiles Three, Five and Six (or riesling or gewurztraminer, syrah or cabernet or malbec, zinfandel or merlot)
Chocolate loves all of these wines. Cheesecake and cookies will love Profile Three. Berry pies will pair well with either red, though we prefer Profile Six.
