How To Pair Wine With Your Favourite TV Show

By / Magazine / October 3rd, 2011 / 1

Wine pairing isn’t just for cheese anymore: savvy sipper Euming Lee serves up tips on which fermentations will add flavour to your fall television line-up. “We’re always looking to pair a great wine with our meals, but wine is so much more than just an occasion based product,” said Lee. “Like sinking into a show, enjoying a glass of wine is a simple way to end the day where we can wind down and escape our busy lifestyles.”

What grape would best compliment the ladies of Wisteria Lane? Lee pairs a selection of blends with the upcoming season’s most buzzed about shows. Whether it’s a Merlot for a murder mystery or a Chardonnay for our beloved Seattle Grace doctors, there’s a wine for you to sip back and relax with your favourite program.

Watch, drink and be merry:

• To compliment the frankness of The Big Bang Theory, the youth of Glee and the playfulness of Dancing with the Stars, try OPEN Wines Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Merlot.

• Linden Bay’s Pinot Grigio is classic and stylish like the new series Pan AM, where Christina Ricci and Margot Robbie explore the energy and excitement of the 1960s Jet Age.

Desperate Housewives and The Good Wife know a thing or two about being naked – physically and emotionally – and should be paired with Naked Grape’s Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.

• We can always count on Meredith Grey and McDreamy to remind us what really counts in life. Grey’s Anatomy, much like Sawmill Creek’s medium-bodied Merlot, takes us back to a place where life is simpler.

• Trove wines captivate and intrigue its audience by enticing them to seek its hidden treasures in a world of mystery. Cue crime dramas! Trove’s Riesling Moscato and Shiraz Cabernet are best served with a side of Blue Bloods, Castle, Criminal Minds or CSI.


Looking at the small things that make life great and the people who create them.
