Ask a Sommelier: What Should I Drink During the Super Bowl?

Ask a Sommelier

We ask top somms across the country for their wine-related advice.

I'm sure you've invited a sommelier to your Super Bowl bash, presented her with your menu ("We'll do the guacamole as an amuse bouche, and then the 7-layer dip as the first course") and asked for pairing advice. Oh, no? Not yet?

Well, we've done the asking for you. When chatting with 17 sommeliers from around the country, we asked for a little advice on the best drinks to serve with spicy wings and nachos, guac and chips, the whole shebang. Check out the slideshow for their picks, from sparkling wine to hoppy IPA to margaritas in a red Solo cup.
