Last month, we planned the ultimate virtual Super Bowl pre-party with January’s Hosted at Home co-hosts, Nickel & Nickel Winemaker Joe Harden and Super Bowl Champion Will Blackmon. Will and Joe's shared passion for professional sports (did you know our Nickel & Nickel winemaker played professional basketball in Australia?) and for the profession of wine was on display during Hosted at Home's aptly dubbed, At-Home Happiest Hour.
If you've not read up on our new monthly wine subscription, check out the full Hosted at Home details here. We have a slate of winemaker and wine industry guests you joining us throughout the year, that you won't want to miss.
Then, read on below. We have three game-day ready appetizer recipes (& two single-vineyard, Napa Valley Cabernets destined to be cellar MVPs) that will take your game day snacking and sipping to the next level. So, when Sunday rolls around you'll be ready.
CLASSIC & CABERNET-PERFECT GAME DAY SNACKS
We pulled three game-day ready appetizers from our archives – stave-smoked chicken wings, Korean short ribs and classic beef sliders - that promise to draw out the bright pops of fruit in our C.C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon and Bear Track Vineyard Cabernet’s deep blackberry and savory sage notes. Resolving to eat less beef and poultry in 2021? You’ll love pairing this cedar-plank roasted manchego with C.C. Ranch. And, Portobello, Shitake and “Hen of the Woods” mushrooms are all amazing substitutions on our sliders.
