Good news for all the wine-lovers out there! According to Boston.com, wine is now in play for Super Bowl Sunday food and beverage line-ups. Although beer is still the beverage of choice, wine is making a significant splash with football fans – especially millennials.
“There’s a reason why beer goes so well with football foods like chicken wings, nachos, and pizza. The bubbles act as a palate cleanser, which helps balance out rich, carb, and fat-laden dishes. But surprisingly, according to a 2016 Nielsen survey, there’s another alcoholic beverage you may want for your Super Bowl table: wine.”
In the survey, “20 percent of respondents said they’d be drinking wine instead of beer for the Super Bowl. Wine is especially popular with millennials, who drank 160 million cases of vino in 2015—nearly half of all wine consumption in the U.S.”
In preparation for the big game on Sunday, Boston.com rounds up recommendations from 2 local wine experts including our own Wine Director Nicholas Daddona!
