It is widely known that while watching the Super Bowl, people are expected to eat wings and nachos, and drink lots of beer. But what if you’re not a beer drinker and instead you prefer a glass of wine? I know that I will have have wine in my hand, because beer just isn't my thing.

Red cherry notes with a lighter body

WHITE: Riesling - Red Slate, Dr Loosen, 2014
