March 14th is Pi Day
During the holidays we were obsessed with the whole idea of pairing wine with holiday cookies so it should not surprise you that we now love The California Wine Club's idea of paring pie & wines. And what could be better than celebrating Pi Day with a slice (or two) of your favorite pies paired with the perfect wines!
Pepperoni Pizza Pie >> Spicy Zinfandel (red, not the white)
Veggie Pizza Pie >> Crisp Chardonnay
Mushroom Pizza Pie >> Woodsy Pinot Noir
Ham & Egg Pie (Quiche) >>Fruity Riesling
Cheddar & Sausage Egg Pie (Quiche) >> Bold Cabernet Sauvignon
Chocolate Silk Pie >>Rich Merlot
Fruit Pie >>A dessert wine or late harvest Sauvignon Blanc
Waited to long to order your wine? Now if you live in Chicago, San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland, San Diego or Los Angeles you are in luck. You can order your wine right after you order your pizza and it will be delivered right to your door in 30 minutes! Call Saucey and take advantage of their 30-MINUTE ALCOHOL DELIVERY. And yes, this includes many of the reds and whites listed above!
Pi Themed Party Supplies
Now that you know what you are serving, why not host a Pi Day Pie Exchange Party! All you need is a fun invitation, a few decorations and some basic rules. Ask every guest to bring their favorite pie. Buy some pie boxes and set them out on a table. Maybe even consider adding a large Pi sticker to the front of each box. Set out all all the pies on another table and let your guests take a slice from each. Be sure to have a stack of paper plates available for tasting 🙂
One more thing >> you might want to award a gift to the clear winner of “Best Pie” or wear one of these snazzy Pi t-shirts yourself!
