Game Plan: Celebrate the Wine Way

September 21, 2023

Down, set, hut. It’s officially football season and we are kicking off with all you need to celebrate when your team is on the road. Hosting a fun celebration to watch your team play an away game is the perfect opportunity to try new recipes, make fun wine tails, and pair delicious snacks with wine!

We all know here in Missouri, we love football. Well, football and of course wine too. But even more than football and wine, we love food! Hosting a football season soiree is a great time to try out new recipes and feed a crowd. We have gathered three recipes for you to serve at your next football function: Catawba Pulled Pork, White Wine Carnitas, and Vidal Blanc Chicken & Cheese Dip.

Wine-tails are a great way to serve your favorite Missouri wine in a unique way. Wine-tails can be enjoyed for any occasion, but we picked these as the perfect drinks to share with your friends during football season: Wine-Rita’s, Concord Daiquiri, Vidal Blanc Punch.

We have the perfect Missouri Wines to pair with your go-to football snacks. Our game day snacks range from sweet to spicy dishes, all with their own wine varietal to pair with.

Jalapeno Poppers + Vignoles

Veggies & Humus + Seyval Blanc

Sliders + Chambourcin
