The weather is warming up, the sun is out, and it’s time to step outside and enjoy the summer, but let’s be honest, we’ve been flexing our binge-watching muscles all winter and spring, so this is no time to let that slide! The next time you Netflix and chill, here’s our Top 3 pairings to match our favorite shows:
1. What better way to start your summer binging than with a nice, easy rom-com, like Set It Up. In this made-for-Netflix movie, two over-worked assistants come up with the brilliant plan to set up their bosses and get them out of the office (and out of their hair). Pair this hilarious movie with a light, refreshing beam of fruitiness for your sipping pleasure; the Lot 647 Oregon Rosé. Rosé. All Day!
2. If you’re up for something a bit darker, Stranger Things will be your new fav. The upside down, supernatural occurrences, psychokinetic abilities, and general nightmare inducing atmosphere make us want to pair this with Lot 613 Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Full-bodied on the palate and richly textured, it’s one of the darkest wines we’ll release this year. You might want to have a glass of this before the show starts… (just to take the edge off)
3. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will bring some great laughs to your summer Netflix plans. What you need to pair with this is Lot 624 Moscato d’Asti. Lightly effervescent, exploding out of the glass with peach and a kiss of sweetness, just like our friend Kimmy!
BONUS PAIRING: Chef’s Table is the sure-to-be favorite of all foodies. These intimate, inspiring stories of great chefs and their humble beginnings make this show a perfect pairing with our Lot 629 Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir, imminently quaffable with excellent length and a long, clean finish…a terrific food wine that is equally deliciously pleasurable on its own.
