The days are getting shorter and it’s cold out there; the sofa, a glass or two of wine and a good series is pretty high on your list of priorities…we open our arms to winter.
We fully encourage this behaviour, so much so that we’ve made it our mission to find the most binge-worthy television shows at the moment and have paired them with wine to ensure you get the most entertainment and relaxation out of the limited time you may have. As always, we’ve got your back.
Black Mirror & Sauvignon Blanc: We know how dependent we have become on technology and perhaps sometimes think abut what will happen if robots took over the world. Oh, just us? Well, Black Mirror is an eye- opening thriller that explores techno-paranoia. It’s guaranteed to make you jump, so to save your sofa from red wine spillage, and you wondering if pouring white wine on it actually works and spending the next half an hour wading through online forums after googling red wine stain and missing the rest of the show, we’d recommend going for our delicious Sauvignon Blanc while contemplating the future of the world.
Narcos & Malbec: Pablo Escobar is back and out for vengeance in season two of Narcos. This season is full of even more bloodshed, backstabbing and bad words. Most Wanted’s Malbec might as well be Narcos’ match made in South American heaven as the literal French translation of Malbec means “bad mouth.” Pretty fitting, eh?
The Crown & Pinot Noir: Want to know what it feels like to be a member of the royal family for a night? Settle down with season two of The Crown and a glass of our Pinot Noir. The Crown shows Queen Elizabeth II at the very beginning of leading the monarchy – it’s a stressful job so we know that she’d enjoy a glass after a long day at work. The Queen will be more used to drinking wine from Burgundy – Fun Fact: a region who’s red wines are made from Pinot Noir- but if you are on a tighter budget than the Queen then our Pinot Noir fits the bill.
Planet Earth II & Albariño: Just when you thought he couldn’t possibly get any better, David Attenborough has just gone and done Planet Earth II which is blowing minds all over the country. Whilst we’re on the topic of exotic destinations we might as well mention that Albariño tastes like tropical fruit, peach and grapefruit, perfect for when you want to pretend you’re sunbathing in Sahara Desert heat instead of trudging in flooded mud.
