In the US, life as we know it tends to come to a screeching halt on Super Bowl Sunday. Everyone, old and young alike, gathers in homes and bars for the biggest NFL football game of the year. This year’s mega-event will take place on Sunday February 1 when the Pittsburgh Steelers face the Arizona Cardinals in Tampa, Florida.
Food is a big part of the festivities, and beer is the usual drink of choice. But Gary Vanerchuk—the hero of Wine Library TV—offers NPR radio host Scott Simon some vinous pairing alternatives, including a Maipo Valley Carmenere with the obligatory buffalo wings.
Listen to the “Wines That Go Well With Super Bowl Food” segment on National Public Radio’s Saturday Edition. (Saturday, January 31, 2009).
