Snooth Pairs Wine with Fast Food

Never sure what wine goes best with a McDonald's Filet-O-Fish? Only have a bottle of 2008 Red Rock Merlot Reserve and can't decide between the iconic Big Mac or the Angus Beef Deluxe?

Well , the folks at Snooth have finally written an article I can really relate to. They threw off the shackles of snobbery and pretension that seem to drown most of the wine press and decided to figure out just what wines go best with popular McDonald's menu items.

Let's face it... somebody is eating this stuff so why not embrace its popularity? And while I generally pair my Filet-O-Fish, McRib or burger choice with a crisp, light bottle of water it's good to know how to make that fish sing with the right wine choice.

Be sure to read some of the comments that accompany the article. It will come as no surprise that some members of Snoothnation are appalled that people would actually have fun writing about something.

Personally, I'd love to see Snooth take this a step further and pair wines and other alcoholic beverages with the less-popular fast food joints of our great nation... boxed wine and Burger King? MD 20/20 and Jack in the Box? Cisco and Taco Bell? The mind reels – and the liver rebels.
