A couple years ago I tweeted a pic of my wine with a bowl of chips and stated it was my perfect wine pairing…The response I received from people, telling me their favorite Wine & Chip combo was CRAZY! Who knew so many people loved to drink wine with their chips…? Turns put about 50% of them…MY PEOPLE !!!
So let’s get fancy shall we…
Cabernet Sauvignon + Original Recipe
This delicious full bodied wine…coupled with the simple flavor and unique crunch of Original Recipe …Is the perfect pairing for a night of ACTION…movies that is. Weather your Mission is Impossible or you are ready to be Bourne again…This will be the perfect match for an evening of excitement on the couch….
Sauvignon Blanc + Lime and Black Pepper
This white has crisp tropical notes…So fly to a beach IMMEDIATELY!! Or..Pair it up with an evening in and a good drama…Then you can be The Judge on whether or not this is the pairing for you…
Merlot + Balsamic Vinegar Sweet Onion
This wine is bright and fruity…So they are perfect to be paired with the tangy sweetness of these chips. The fun vibe of this pairing is perfect for a night of laughter. So call all your Bridesmaids over for a girls night in and figure out exactly when Harry did meet Sally.
Pinot Grigio + Seal Salt and Malt Vinegar
There is a crisp nectarine and peach flavor to this wine which pairs so well with the acidic tang from the salt and malt vinegar. This yin and yang is the best companion for a night of reality television. So you can bet that Big Brother is watching your Amazing Race to the bottle of the bottle and the bag.
Whatever your taste have fun with these pairings, mix and match and let me know your favorite pairings. If you are on Twitter or Instagram be sure to snap a shot of your pairings and hash tag them #UnwindTogether ..Would love to see what you are enjoying, also what you are watching these days, I am always looking for new TV show to obsess over.

The martini is one of history’s most iconic cocktails, from its humble beginnings as a vermouth heavy drink in the 1860s, through the Bond era, into the ‘tini’ madness of the 80s and 90s, and up to present day, where elegance and simplicity rule the day.
Drinking a martini is a very individual experience, and although the ingredients are few, the possibilities are endless.
While asking for a martini might seem like a daunting task, embarrassing if the bartender knows too much, and frustrating if the bartender knows too little, it doesn’t have to be, provided that you know your martini.
