The shows to stream and the wines to pair with them
Your next wine night in (which is like every night right now…) Order takeout from a local restaurant and start streaming one of these binge-worthy series.
The Righteous Gemstones
This surprising comedy thriller about a televangelist Megachurch family was filmed in Charleston, South Carolina. Created by Danny McBride and starring John Goodman, you’ll binge the nine episodes of the first season in a few days. It’s that good.
Wine to try: Pair with a dark and complex Zinfandel like Dry Creek Vineyard 2018 Heritage Vines Zinfandel , because the family dynamics are complex and the humor is dark.
Like everyone else in quarantine, tune into the documentary about big cat owners. The drama is unreal except it is real. Episode 2 is when things get really crazy.
Wine to try: Uncork a white wine like JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay which is as smooth as Joe Exotic’s music videos.
This funny family cooped up in a motel in a small town is certainly relevant during this weird quarantine time. They make the most of their situation, and so can we by laughing our way through all six seasons. Ew, David.
Wine to try: Open up a bottle of Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut for your champagne taste on a $20 budget – it’ll be your go-to sparkling to keep chilled for special occasions like Taco Tuesdays.
Big Little Lies
Are you gritty like Madeline? Reserved like Celeste? Mysterious like Jane? Or an overachiever like Renata? No matter your mood, open up your favorite bottle and settle in for this drama starring and produced by Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
Wine to try: Our Big Little Lies wine companion pairs your favorite character with the wine to drink.
