    Exploring All Things Wine With You!

    Are You Ready For Some Football.....And Wine?

    In episode Kim and Mark talk football food and wine pairings.

    Football food is often hearty and flavorful, making it a challenge to pair with wine. However, there are a few key principles to follow to create successful pairings we will discuss:

    Match the intensity of the food with the intensity of the wine.

    Consider the acidity of the wine.

    Think about the complementary flavors of the food and wine. For example, the sweetness of Riesling can balance the heat of buffalo sauce, while the smoky notes of Tempranillo can complement the flavors of grilled meats.

    Here are a few foods we will talk pairing wines with:

    Buffalo wings

    Nachos

    Burgers

    Chips and dips AND more!

    With a little planning, you can elevate your football party/tailgating by pairing your favorite foods with the perfect wines.

    Cheers

    And

    GO PATS!

Great podcast, just make it past the intro music

I’ve recently been sampling pretty much every podcast on wine. I particularly like Kim’s take on things. The hosts have a way of making it more interesting than most.

But please, can we change that really annoying wine wine wine intro music.
