Pick up a Chaminé for your Super Bowl Party

See also

You've got a place to watch the big game, but need to pick up a bottle on the way. What to choose? For food friendly wines with great value, look in the Portugal section of your wine store.

One of the best values you will find is Chaminé, a fruity crowd-pleasure from the Alentejo Region in southern Portugal that retails for $9.99. This easy drinking wine is bottled early without any oak aging. It's a juicy red blend of 45% Aragonez (Tempranillo), 30% Syrah, 12% Touriga Nacional, 7% Trincadeira, and 6% Alicante Bouschet. The name Chaminé originates from one of the vineyard plots – ‘Chaminé de Gião’, where originally the grapes used in the wine were grown.

The winery that produces this delightful party wine is Cortes de Cima, family owned winery under the daily supervision of Hans Kristian Jorgensen (winemaker) and Carrie Jorgensen (marketing).

If you're headed to Jersey to watch the game, Chaminé is widely available including at Wine Legend in Livingston, NJ. If you're staying in the city, you can find Cortes de Cima wines at Union Square Wines.
