Fall is in full swing, which means weekends filled with football and plates piled high with sports staples like wings and nachos. If you’re tailgating at the game, burgers, ribs and sausages might be sizzling on your grill. While we love to occasionally spend the afternoon sipping on seasonable beers, we think that wine is a great game day drink. Looking for a bold wine that can stand up to a bowl of chili? Need a bottle than can tame the heat of your nuclear wings? From chili to wings and ten other game day staples, our Football Game Day Wine Pairings Chart has the perfect wines to pair with your meal.
If you want to learn more about each wine we chose, we have a link to our Wine 101 about each variety below the infographic.
