Grapes of the Gridiron

Posted by The Wine Whore |


What type of wine do you drink while watching football?

Personally, my choice gridiron grape of choice would have to be something red and manly like a Shiraz or Cab. I wonder if they make one of those beer helmets for wine... that would be awesome!


Cheers!

Football and the John Wayne of wines - Petite Sirah and ribs.

Look up Terry Hoage Vineyards. Highly acclaimed wines from a former UGA football great.

An ozzie named Quarterback, can't remember who makes it, though a blend of Cab, Mer, Shiraz and one that I again fail to remember... even got the field on the label...

Amen bro, Cabernet Sauvignon! Now, I'd like to see a post dedicated to pairing wines with an assortment of sports:

Football - Cabernet Sauvignon
Golf - Pinot Noir
etc...

The Wine Whore said...

That's a great idea! What sport do you think would go well with Merlot? :)


Cheers!

Riesling and Nachos/Chips and Salsa,
Cabernet or Pinot with a good (turkey) burger.

As for my alma matter (TCU! GO FROGS!), its hard to drink anything but a Shiner Bock while watching them!

Here's the full info on the Quarterback, I was too lazy to look it up yesterday, though now when football soon it on, it's about time to get the facts down!

De Lisio Quarterback, De Lisio Wines-Vine Control, South Australia, Barossa Valley, grapes: Syrah 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 27%, Merlot 22% and Grenache 21%. 16% alc.

Heavy and dark with tones of liquerice and dark, bitter chocalate and a hint of dark sweet ripe berries. Though quite smooth and drinkable, nice one, as I remember it!

Is it okay to admit that I like drinking beer and watching football too? :)

What the heck is that? :)

Randy,
It's got to be a sport that doesn't get too much respect in the US, maybe soccer. But then again, I hate soccer and I enjoy a good Merlot. Tennis...

The Wine Whore said...

LOL! I think you nailed it.... Tennis- The official sport of Merlot!

What about Chardonnay?


Cheers!
