I was a bit surprised by this combo – wine and chips? Boy was I wrong! What a fun way to pair up two favourites! 🙂 Miss Vickie’s has researched and found some great wines to go along with their chips. Here are their recommendations:
MISS VICKIE’S ORIGINAL RECIPE POTATO CHIPS + ROSEMOUNT ESTATE SHIRAZ-CABERNET
MISS VICKIE’S SEA SALT & MALT VINEGAR POTATO CHIPS + ROSEMOUNT ESTATE PINOT GRIGIO
MISS VICKIE’S BALSAMIC VINEGAR & SWEET ONION POTATO CHIPS + ROSEMOUNT ESTATE SHIRAZ
Some great pairings, and a fun way to rethink a wine night! We had these over a few nights when we went to Gimli, was a perfect way to end days spent at the beach, some very casual relaxing grown up time! My favourite was the pairing of the original chips with the shiraz cabernet, the spice of the wine went really well with the chips great crunch and flavour.
I’m thinking these wine and chip parties are great for end of the summer backyard get together – nothing fancy, opening a bottle of wine and some chips for your guests, fun for all. Also makes for a great mom get together for that first back to school weekend, keep it casual and light for all the guests. Fun idea when you’re not sure what to bring for a hostess gift too, a very unusual pairing that will surprise your host! It’s all very affordable too, the Miss Vickies chips are usually around 3$ something and the wines are all priced at around $15.
So, if you’re invited anywhere this weekend, you now have another great idea what to bring along! Has anyone else tried these wine and chip pairings? I’m thinking these will be a new tradition for us, both with guests but also as a new treat on movie nights!
