Superbowl Sunday: a day dedicated to football, screaming at the tv, drinking beer, and eating lots of food. I personally am not the sport type, but I do enjoy delicious food and drinks while hanging out with great friends. To my fellow wine lovers, you would understand my level of excitement when VOGA Italia Wine sent me a box of goodies a few days before the Superbowl, including a bottle of Pinot Grigio, Dolce Rosso, Prosecco, and Sparkling wine. I have always been interested in the different types of wine and how they pair with specific foods. VOGA Italia Wine also sent over a list of Superbowl foods that compliment my new bottles of wine.
We brought our VOGA Italia wine to this year’s Superbowl Party, a big change to the usual beer my friends and I drink. My favorite foods are the unhealthy and fried ones such as boneless buffalo wings, mozzarella sticks, burgers, and nachos, but to my luck, these are the suggested Superbowl foods that the VOGA Italia wine would go great with!
We started off with pairing the Pinot Grigio with guacamole and Tostitos chips. Pinot Grigio is my favorite wine and I love the VOGA Italia Pinot Grigio. The light wine complimented the saltiness of the Tostitos chips very well and didn’t overpower the hints of red onion and jalapeño in the guacamole. We then moved on to the sweet Dolce Rosso that we paired with mini burger sliders. I prefer my burgers well done and thought the Dolce Rosso left a very savory taste. Next we moved on to the Prosecco wine matched with spicy buffalo chicken pizza. The Prosecco went well with the spice of the buffalo sauce and the thick pizza dough. We saved the Sparkling wine for dessert which we paired with funfetti cupcakes and sugar cookies. With only 155 calories a bottle, we sure made up for the rest of the calories with the sweets.
VOGA Italia wine is now my new favorite brand of wine to drink. With the bottles ranging from $10.99 to $15.99, not only are they affordable, but they are very delectable in taste, too. Choosing to drink wine instead of beer left us feeling unbloated and made our food tastier. Visit their website at Vogaitalia.com. BY TATIANA STEC
