Looking to stay busy? We know the feeling! While the most common wine pairings might be matched with foods...we like to switch things up. We decided to see what Daniel's Vineyard wines our quaranTEAM has been drinking with their latest binge shows on everyone's favorite streaming site: Netflix!
JESSICA P'S PICK:
"Tiger King" + Racing Red
Tiger King keeps you on your toes through this entire documentary. A murder mystery docu-series highlighting the fame of Joe Exotic, the epitome of "Jack of all Trades." He is a country music star, pizza chef, magician, Tiger King and gubernatorial campaigner. At the end of this series, I am so thankful I am a "Wine Person" and the "Tiger" life is not for me."
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Racing Red; This docu-series will have you racing with the bold choices made by Joe Exotic, Jeff & Carole.
"Ugly Delicious" + Traminette
Chef David Chang travels and cooks to examine the cultural, sociological, and culinary history of a specific popular food in each episode. Have you ever wondered what makes a taco a taco Why "BBQ" means something different depending on where you grew up? Or why there are so many styles of pizza around the world? This is the show for you.
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Traminette with the "Shrimp & Crawfish" Episode; Why have just one? Have fun, pair different wines with each episode. Try Circle City Red with "BBQ" episode, Chardonnay with "Fried Chicken".
"Suits" + The Riveter Rosé
Harvey Specter is like a fine wine, just gets better with age! Big time Manhattan Corporate Lawyer, Harvey Specter and his Team, which includes Donna Paulsen, Louis Litt and Alex Williams are launched into a play for power when a new partner joins the firm. With his two best associates gone and Jessica back in Chicago, Specter and the Team try to adjust to a new normal without them. The team faces betrayals, fiery relationships and secrets that eventually come to life. Old and new rivalries surface as they learn to deal with one another. We love the theme song... Greenback Boogie!
PAIRING SUGGESTION: The women are sipping on the Riveter Rosé while the men are drinking our bold, new Cabernet Sauvignon!
JESSICA F'S PICK:
"Ozark" + Fireside Sangria
A quote from Marty Byrde: I’m just saying that any decision made, big or small, has an impact around the world.
Ain’t that the truth, timing is everything! Season 3 of Ozark released just a few days into this quarantine. What better timing?!
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Nothing like binge watching your favorite show on the couch “along side a cracking fire” while enjoying a bottle of Daniel’s Fireside Sangria.
This is just scratching the surface of what Netflix has to offer! We'll be back with more pairings. In the meantime, you go enjoy yourself a glass of your favorite and tune into something you can binge! Better yet, try these four shows and their pairings! You won't regret it.
