The Grammy Awards air this Sunday night. As music’s biggest names hit the stage for a jam-packed show of glitz, rock and winners, you can sit home and bounce up and down on the couch to your favorite artists. To accompany your living room concert, we’ve paired wine with some of the nominees for Album of the Year.
Surprisingly bumping some bigs from this category, Sara Bareilles landed two nominations, one for best album for The Blessed Unrest.
So for a shockingly good wine that’s able to stand with the big names, we chose an understated, not-so-mainstream, delicious sparkling wine to accompany this nod.
DUE PILLITTERI Brut non-vintage (Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada) $25
Random Access Memories by Daft Punk offered up the anthem of last summer, Get Lucky. To that we say, sure, it is winter now, but disco dance up a storm at home with a warm-weather rosé and channel the beach, and longer days.
MAS DE CADENET Côtes de Provence Sainte-Victoire Rosé 2012 (Côtes de Provence, France) $15
The Heist is
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ first studio album, independently produced, reaching acclaim from a true grassroots’ effort, without a huge publicity machine behind it. We pair this album with a small independent winery in Santa Barbara, whose first full vintage was 2008.
DRAKE Chardonnay 2008 (Santa Maria Valley, CA) $32
Red by powerhouse Taylor Swift calls for a red wine reflective of this explosive talent. We offer up an Argentine red described as “vibrant…full of life, and fresh.” Taylor Swift indeed.
LA POSTA Angel Paulucci Malbec 2010 (Mendoza, Argentina) $15
