Pairing: Wine and Netflix
Getting the most out of Life in Lockdown...
In a world of uncertainty, what hasn’t changed is the abundance of content on streaming services which we’re sure will get heavily used as Melbournians get reacquainted with the inside of their homes.
Check out our suggestions for wines that will take your Netflix & Chill session to the next level.
Light Dry White Wines
This is your staple weekly binge. Pair your easy drinking with easy viewing, includes the essential nips of sharp wit and bouts of nihilism.

You know its time to crack open the oaky/buttery/complex white wines for those shows that need to be savoured (they're that good that you can have them on repeat over and over again.)
The mood is very much you’ve had it before and you’ll watch it again.

Light & Jovial Red Wine

It's Friday night and you've had a trying Work From Home week. You're not in the mood to think deeply and follow fast paced and convoluted story lines. Ideally, you're on the couch with a jar of Pringles, a round of camembert and a some vita-wheats.

Big, Bold and Juicy Red Wine
The heavy Shiraz or Cab Sauv goes with big, heavyweight shows. Just like the wine, we find shows that demand your attention and catch you right in the feels are well paired to shiraz and a spicy cab sav.

As always, happy drinking!
