From whites to reds, cinnamon sugar to truffle, get ready to dive into a sea of flavors with Mari’s ultimate list of eight wine and popcorn pairings.
“The rosemary herbal flavors complement the cassis and dark Cabernet fruit adding layers of complexity to the wine.” -Mari
“I love the caramel flavors that mimic the butterscotch and cream notes in Chardonnay.” – Mari
“This playful pairing adds citrus flavors for an explosive combination of fruit.” – Mari
“Matching flavors found in wine is a great way to pair wines. In this pairing, the cinnamon popcorn brings out the barrel spice notes in the wine.” – Mari
“A sweet and savory pairing, this unusual combination complements the richness and depth of our red blend.” – Mari
“Pulling from the lime flavors in the wine, our chili lime popcorn balances the acidity and green fruit notes found in Sauvignon Blanc.” – Mari
“Truffles and Sparkling are one of my go-to pairings. Adding flavors of salt and earthiness of truffles really make this wine pop. No pun intended ;)” – Mari
“Another one of my classic pairing combos, Lemon flavors complement any rosé, allowing the complexities to emerge from the glass.” – Mari
