    Football - Wine & Wing Pairings

    Yes it's football season and what do you think about besides tailgate parties and beer? Wings! I have to admit, I am a wing snob. Going to college in Buffalo, NY made me that way and I like my wings extra hot and extra crispy with lots of blue cheese. If I can't have them that way, I like them Thai Chili or just about any way they're made.

      Butternut Squash Risotto: White Wine or Rosé for #winePW 5?

      Pull That Cork - - 3 readers - The theme for the October Wine Pairing Weekend (#winePW) is Fall Fruits and Wine Pairings. Fall fruits…hmm that title made me think of dessert initially. But, then I got to thinking about what a fall fruit is.

(until the next bite) I found this nice infographic on DrinkUpRoot and thought of passing it along for your wing and wine pairings during football season. Let me know what wines you pair with your wings? by uproot. …
