Beer may be the drink people expect on game day, but this Sunday is the Super Bowl and we’re pulling out all the stops to make it the most epic — even at home! We round up some of our MVBs (most-valuable bottles) to sip while you watch the big game. Here, 5 bottles ready to take on your Super Bowl snack spread!
The ultimate game day wine comes in a box! Now don’t overlook this pick: Black Box has received 70 Gold Medals at wine competitions around the world! Their Cabernet Sauvignon is full-bodied with notes of black currant, toasty oak, and a hint of vanilla. It’s easy-to-drink and food friendly! $16
The Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is medium-bodied with fresh citrus notes. You’ll taste lemon, lime and grapefruit as well as passion fruit and peach, making it a great match for those spicy chicken wings! $16
Next, the Hess Family Select Pinot Gris from California. This vivacious white has fresh acidity with bright pineapple and citrus. It pairs well with lightly-dressed salads and simply prepared veggies. Hess family wines always deliver. $10
The Wente Pinot Noir is a crowd-pleasing central coast find. This drinkable, medium-bodied pinot will pair beautifully with whatever you’re serving up for game day. $13
Last, but certainly not least, is one of our favorites: the Mumm Napa Blanc de Blancs. This wine is made in the same style as a French Champagne—hints of toast and apples—but without the price tag. It’s perfect for pre-game mimosas or enjoying all on its own! $21
