Read, Drink, and Be Merry!
These days, there’s something to celebrate every day—but we’re not complaining! We love to appreciate the little things and take some time to celebrate the things we love. April 12th is known as national “Drop Everything and Read” Day or “D.E.A.R.” Day, so we’ve decided to pair some classic novels with delicious wines. This one is for all of our wine-loving bookworms!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen with Reserve Petite Sirah
We’ve paired this Jane Austen classic with our award-winning Reserve Petite Sirah. The smooth sips will accompany you perfectly through the Bennet Family’s drama, with bold flavors pairing up with bold characters. In the end, this comedy of manners is all about finding love, which is exactly how we feel when we open a bottle of our Petite Sirah.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee with Jewel Petit Verdot
This story is a masterpiece designed to make the reader think. Enjoy this complex and poignant book that interfaces with justice, bias, and compassion alongside the complex bouquet and rounded structure of our Petit Verdot. Both the book and the wine are beautiful in their intricacy, linger on in your mind, and will remain enjoyable for years to come.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald with Sparkling Wine
Of course, we’ll be popping open a bottle of sparkling for this book! There’s nothing quite like a bottle of sparkling to turn a reading nook into a tiny world of luxury. Let the bubbles transport you to the glittering grandeur of Gatsby’s mansion or to the poshness of the Plaza Hotel. Either way, it’s bright and lovely, a perfect match for the glitz of 1920s Long Island.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis with Reserve Chardonnay
With this combination, you can feel the beauty of a harmonious ensemble! Enjoy a symphony of pleasant flavors alongside a cast of colorful characters. While there isn’t too much secret magic behind the rich body of our Chardonnay, it’s always perfect with a flourish of whimsical adventure.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll with Armonia Lot #10
Much like Alice’s adventures, our Club-exclusive Armonia Lot #10 stands out as a unique and perhaps unexpected blend. Our Armonia brings together not only multiple varietals, but also multiple vintages into its harmonious blend. The rich layering of the wine stands up perfectly with the surreal and even nonsensical events of the story.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas with Peacock Patch Zinfandel
This colorful story, dense with adventure, fortune, and revenge is a rich companion for a generous glass of Peacock Patch Zin. These Zinfandel grapes are grown in a gravely block of the vineyard which causes the flavor to concentrate, in turn creating a superb wine. The Count’s story is much the same, allowing his story's rocky start to lead to wealth and strength.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain with Riverbed Red
Though the namesake riverbed of this Club-exclusive blend has long since been dry, we still love a glass of this wine as we join Huck Finn and Jim on the Mississippi. Lively fruit notes of wild blueberry match the liveliness of Huckleberry himself, and both the wine and the story finish delightfully.
If classic novels aren’t your style, choose whatever you like! Choose the genre you want, your favorite chair or sofa, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy a touch of escapism. If you have plans for D.E.A.R. Day, we'd love to be a part of them! Let us know @rubyhillwines.
