March Madness Wine + (Finger) Food Menu

From spring-ready wines to indulgent duck-fat fries, these sips and snacks are a guaranteed game day slam-dunk.

The NCAA tournament, also known as March Madness, kicked off with 64 men’s college teams battling it out on the court. Of those, 32 make it the next round, followed by the Sweet 16, Elite Eight, Final Four and finally, the Championship game. And whether you’re participating in a bracket (reports show that upwards of $9 million will be spent on betting) or watching each game attentively (last year the Championship game reportedly attracted 20 million viewers), you’re going to need a whole lot of drinks (and food) during the next few weeks of madness.

Below, we’ve gathered our favorite sips and snacks that pair perfectly with rooting on your top picks. From duck-fat fries to perfectly crispy fried chicken, we’re serving up wine-and-beer friendly finger foods that are a guaranteed slam-dunk.

While you’re at it, let us know who you want to take home the Championship, and stay tuned for Wine Enthusiast’s own spirited bracket.
