Why wait for the Super Bowl to have a fabulous football party? The season is here, so kick off the good times with friends and family. While watching the big games, you’ll need some relaxing refreshments!
But sack the flavorless light beer and bland nachos. For a truly refreshing change, take in the tackles and touchdowns with a glass of Beaujolais! While serving any Beaujolais wine is a winning game plan, Juliénas is a particularly exciting choice. A lively wine that goes down easy, it packs a light flavor that’s delicious and ideal for the mild fall weather.
Once the wine is lined up, you’ll need to score some snacks. We’ve got just the recipe to make a championship worthy pairing: Tangy Chicken Wings with Juliénas Sauce! Juliénas pairs exceptionally well with poultry. It’s known as an ideal ingredient in coq au vin, a classic French chicken dish that’s cooked with wine. For football season, you can easily make a more casual version of the pairing with our refined chicken wings recipe. It features a tangy and robust glaze made with Beaujolais.
For a simple side that pairs equally well with Beaujolais, all-star sommelier Aldo Sohm recommends guacamole. It adds fresh flavor and cheerful color that will look great lined up with the wine and wings.
