Netflix & Chill
Nothing says fun and relaxation like curling up on the couch with a good show and a great glass of wine. If there is anything that we all have in common, it is our unapologetic Netflix binge watching capabilities. In the effort of saving you some time, we have rounded up a list of the most binge-worthy Netflix shows that you can enjoy with these specially curated wines. Just as there’s a wine for every food, there’s always a perfect bottle for whatever you’re binging on-screen.
This dramatic masterpiece follows reign of Queen Elizabeth II’s and the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. A massive hit out of the gate with it's convincing portrayl and exquisite production value, The Crown is a stunner with detail. The perfect wine that shares the same attention to detail is Chateau Saint Ahon 's Cru Bourgeois. Bold and spicy, this Bordeaux red will get you in the mood for some royal binging.
This filthy-rich turns broke-as-heck family has torn up the TV screen with its array of Emmy’s and ride or die fans. A wine that presents as high end with a surprising price point is Cave du Luberon's Alidon Rouge. This budget friendly wine is not only easy on the wallet, but the palate too with aromas of dark fruits, olives and dried herbs, giving a feeling of richness without the $.
Emily in Paris:
Emily Cooper, a young American woman is hired by a marketing firm in Paris to provide a unique perspective. This is a show full of fashion, romance and cheeky wine facts, as Emily while meeting a friend for breakfast, comments on how Sancerre is the perfect breakfast wine.We couldn’t agree more! Domaine Denizot Sancerre is fresh and lively with hints of juicy white-fleshed fruit. Throw on your most fashionable sweats and dive into this perfect wine.
A classic show that keeps us coming back for more is cult favourite, The Office. With its quirky characters that you just love to hate, this feel-good show will always put you in a good mood. The Office's dry humour needs a dry white wine to pair with it. Bedouet Vigneron Mus K De with it's aromas of lemon pith, shortbread and wet stone is the perfect match, and we'll bet you'll love this wine and just hate to finish it.
The Queens Gambit:
This coming-of-age drama follows the life of Beth Harmon, an orphaned chess prodigy as she rises to the top of the chess world. She is a resilient and strong character that needs to be paired with an equally strong wine. Chateau Viaud Lalande is a wine of extreme complexity with layers of cassis, milk chocolate, forest floor and sweet Asian spices. Equally as strong, it is as classic as the Queen's Gambit sequence itself.
This sexy drama centres around the Bridgerton family's quest for love and the lust, wealth and betrayal that surrounds them. This show will get you hooked with it's sumptious sets, steamy scenes and gorgeous cast, definitley requiring a glass to cool off. Domaine Lucien Jacob's Cremant is that sexy glass with its soft, mouthfilling bubbles that leave you wanting more. A cheeky series needs a cheeky wine and we think Bridgerton is the perfect match with our favourite Cremant.
