If you’re looking to pop a bottle of wine and chill-out to some good tunes, I’ve provided a matching list of tracks that team well with some popular wine varieties.
Adele – Hello
A serious red wine with massive tannins teams best with Adele’s massive voice, and heartfelt lyrics.
Hello red, can you hear me?
Rufus – Take Me
Perfectly chilled music teamed with a perfectly chilled chardonnay – it’s a match that’s surprisingly smooth and satisfying.
Lorde – Tennis Court
A New Zealand voice for a wine that New Zealand is famous for.
Vance Joy – Riptide
While most of his songs would be consumed over a red, this upbeat tune goes well with a chilled Rosé. It reminds me of summer.
Aretha Franklin – Respect
A classic full bodied wine with aromatic spices, deserves a classic song that everyone knows and loves to bust out the words to. It’s the wine you want when you get home.
Drake – Hotline Bling
With enough glasses of this wine you too can dance like Drake. Nuf said.
Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud
A smooth and well-rounded wine you can drink with a friend and really think out loud.
Justin Bieber – Love yourself
The Biebs just keeps getting better with age, just like a Pinot Noir. You too, should go and love your Pinot Noir
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Downtown
A crisp tune with crisp lyrics that you can rap to. It’s one wine that I would head downtown for.
Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars)
A boppy tune that gets everyone’s feet moving. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a wine that appeals to the masses.
Taylor Swift – Style
A slightly sweet tune that packs an edge to it.
Maroon 5 – Sugar
Sweet song for a sweet wine. The high sugar content of this wine will lift your vocal chords to another level, just like Adam Levine.
Beyoncé – Single Ladies
The bubbles in this wine brings the girls together, and even gets the guys popping out their Queen B moves.
Van Morrison – Moondance
With Port being the perfect wine at the end of an evening, you’ll easily have one last dance left in you, so why not make it a Moondance.
Let me know what you like to listen to when you tip the bottle.
Until next time winos,
