Enjoy a Super Bold Sunday Wine!
This 2020 Super Bowl is pretty exciting in Northern California. As the home of the 49ers, we could not be happier about our team fighting for the win on Feb. 2nd. For the big game we thought it would be fun to share some super bold wines that would pair well with your game day treats.
2016 Barbera with 7 Layer Bean Dip
Would it be game day without chips and dip? Probably not! Try our 2016 Barbera with your favorite 7 layered bean dip recipe. The peppery Italian varietal has been aged in neutral French and American oak for beautiful medium body. Enjoy aromas and flavors of leather, tobacco, black cherry, currant, and fig. A glass of this Barbera will compliment your rustic beans and cheese.

2016 Mourvedre with Turkey Pinwheels
Whoever invented the turkey and cheese pinwheels deserves the highest chef award out there! These snacks are perfect treats and, because there is lettuce inside, you get to feel healthy while eating them! If there is lettuce it counts as a salad right?!
Well even if they might not be as healthy as we would want, enjoy a turkey pinwheel with the 2016 Mourvedre. This beautiful food wine with a medium body expresses enchanting aromas of ripe black cherry, vanilla, and smoky oak wood. The wine finishes with a touch of berry tartness to compliment the sweet cranberry and savory turkey in your sporty snack.

Ecocask White Wine Blend with Spicy BBQ Wings
What can be more perfect than enjoying your favorite wine in a can and eating your favorite game day snack while watching your favorite team? Spicy BBQ wings never miss a game and the fruity sweetness and citrus of the Ecocask White Blend is a perfect teammate with spice. The blend features flavors and aromas of white nectarine, honeysuckle, and sweet grapefruit.

Ecocask Red Wine Blend with Pork Sliders
Our last recommendation might just be your favorite! Try the Ecocask Red Wine Blend in a can with a pork slider. This bold red, with wonderful flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, leather, and chocolate, is a delightful pairing with the juicy pork slider. You might want to wait till half time for this pairing just so you can fully enjoy every bite.
