What food and wine will you pick for the Super Bowl?

By Rocco Loosbrock


Like millions of Americans, Jacob`s Creek, the leading Australian wine company, plans on celebrating one of the most significant American sporting events with wine while watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals in football`s biggest game of the year. Whether feasting on pizza, nachos, or burgers while gathered around the TV, Jacob`s Creek offers the ideal food and wine pairings for an unforgettable viewing experience.


If you`re like me you will be eating foods like Chips, Salsa & Quesadillas while watching the Super Bowl and though you might throw back a few beers you`re likely to drink some wine.  Jacob Creek has made some great recommendations on what types of wine to drink while eating this football favorite food.  They suggest that if you are looking to cool down from the spicy salsa or a referee`s call you don`t agree with, they recommend that a bottle of Merlot offers a great cooling effect.  Also, Chardonnay is a great option for anything that is corn-based such as tortilla chips or quesadillas. 


Jacob`s Creek has been the most popular wine brands in Australia for more than a decade, and has grown to become the leading Australian wine brand in the UK, NZ, Ireland, Scandinavia and Asia with sales in excess of 8 million cases. Jacob`s Creek success can be attributed to its rich history and heritage, reflecting more than 150 years of winemaking expertise, the quality of the wine offer and the easy fruit driven wine style widely enjoyed by consumers across the world.
