It’s Valentine’s Day; you’ve cued up your favourite Rom-Com, have your best friend, partner, or just you ready (and possibly the tissues); but wait!
What wine should you pair with your movie?!!
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Here at Mayhem, we take our fun seriously, and after some not-so-exhaustive research, we’ve cracked the romantic movie/wine-pairing code.
Firstly, we asked around the winery what people’s all time go-to romantic movie was. The results showed that there are 3 distinct styles that people choose:
1.Red Hot-Blooded, like Ken’s Moonstruck, Ajay’s Crazy, Stupid Love, Patrice’s Dirty Dancing, Terry’s Princess Bride and Ange’s Pretty Woman
2.Musical, like Janet’s Mama Mia and Zola’s Moulin Rouge
3. Quirky, like Sholeh’s Along came Polly, Jan’s You’ve Got Mail, Julia’s Serendipity, Janice’s Leap Year, Jak & Andrew can have a bro-mance date watching their favourite, Love Actually, Heather’s Some Kind of Wonderful, and Natalie’s Bridget Jones’ Diary. This was by far the largest category (what does this say about us in the wine Industry?!), and while there may be some speculation on Chris’ favourite (he’s the strong silent type), we did identify a wine that will go with each category. Are you on the edge of your seat? Keep reading…
For those who like Quirky, your match is 2020 Riesling
Like your favourite quirky romantic movie, Riesling is a wine that has personality plus, layers of depth, and leaves you wondering what just hit you! Riesling is an iconoclastic individual’s wine.
