I love snuggling with a blanket on the couch after a long day of classes, meetings, and work, flipping on the TV, and enjoying a glass of wine. I got to thinking today about what grapes I would pair with four of my favorite shows and here are the results of my musings!
The Office: Champagne
Honest-to-goodness, rolling-on-the-floor funny paired with seriously delicious…just like John Krasinkski.
Californication: Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay
Quintiessential California varietals perfect for a show that deals with the stereotypes of Hollywood.
Trauma: Pinot Noir
A drama-thriller about paramedics in San Franscisco pairs well with this stubborn varietal that thrives in the cooler climates of Northern California and Oregon. Easy to drink, great for when you’re sitting on the edge of your seat as all hell breaks lose.
Glee: Sokol Blosser Evolution Lucky Edition White Wine Blend
Just like Glee, this blend of 9 grapes, including Muller-Thurgau, White Riesling, Semillon, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Muscat Canelli, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Sylvaner, is diverse, provocative, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Your turn! What are your picks for the best TV and wine pairings?
