NCAA® March Madness® and Wine

Wisconsin and 2006 Heron Chardonnay

Wisconsin breakdown - Wisconsin received its 11th consecutive bid to the NCAA tournament, but the team hasn't exactly built on the success of past years. With a shallow bench and streaky outsider shooters, the Badger's number one goal on Friday night will be shutting down Toney Douglas, any way they can. However, experience can work wonders for first round teams and Wisconsin's "been there, done that" mental edge could get them a win.

2006 Heron Chardonnay - Seeing as Wisconsin hasn't done much with their tournament bids for the past many years, this wine pairing is taking another tack. More exciting than Wisconsin being in the tournament is the fact that cheese is abundant. A nice mild Wisconsin Cheddar will pair perfectly with the soft apple, pear and cream of the Heron Chardonnay. What basketball game?
