Tunes and tannins – Pairing music with wine

If you’re looking to pop a bottle of wine and chill-out to some good tunes, I’ve provided a matching list of tracks that team well with some popular wine varieties.



Adele – Hello

A serious red wine with massive tannins teams best with Adele’s massive voice, and heartfelt lyrics.

Hello red, can you hear me?

Rufus – Take Me

Perfectly chilled music teamed with a perfectly chilled chardonnay – it’s a match that’s surprisingly smooth and satisfying.

Sauvignon Blanc

Lorde – Tennis Court

A New Zealand voice for a wine that New Zealand is famous for.

Vance Joy – Riptide

While most of his songs would be consumed over a red, this upbeat tune goes well with a chilled Rosé. It reminds me of summer.

Aretha Franklin – Respect

A classic full bodied wine with aromatic spices, deserves a classic song that everyone knows and loves to bust out the words to. It’s the wine you want when you get home.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Drake – Hotline Bling

With enough glasses of this wine you too can dance like Drake. Nuf said.

Ed Sheeran – Thinking Out Loud

A smooth and well-rounded wine you can drink with a friend and really think out loud.

Pinot Noir

Justin Bieber – Love yourself

The Biebs just keeps getting better with age, just like a Pinot Noir. You too, should go and love your Pinot Noir

Pinot Grigio

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Downtown

A crisp tune with crisp lyrics that you can rap to. It’s one wine that I would head downtown for.

Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk (feat. Bruno Mars)

A boppy tune that gets everyone’s feet moving. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a wine that appeals to the masses.

Taylor Swift – Style

A slightly sweet tune that packs an edge to it.

Maroon 5 – Sugar

Sweet song for a sweet wine. The high sugar content of this wine will lift your vocal chords to another level, just like Adam Levine.

Beyoncé – Single Ladies

The bubbles in this wine brings the girls together, and even gets the guys popping out their Queen B moves.

Van Morrison – Moondance

With Port being the perfect wine at the end of an evening, you’ll easily have one last dance left in you, so why not make it a Moondance.
