Wine + Music Pairing 101

Although you may be aware of the intricacies of pairing wine with food, have you thought about pairing wine with music? Now you don’t have to because Reserve Tastings Wine Company has taken the guesswork out of it for you.

Here is the basic equation: Mindi Abair’s experience writing, recording & performing music combined with her husband Eric Guerra’s managing of some of the world’s legendary wineries equals a new wine membership club, WINE + MUSIC, that captures the essence of both of them. This private club exclusively selects high-end boutique wine for its members and pairs it with a curated playlist and label artwork inspired by each wine style. Membership is available at three concert-inspired levels: Front Row, General Admission and Standing Room Only. The wine, paired music playlists and label artwork are shipped directly to the consumer 3 to 6 times per year and include tasting notes as well as invitations to VIP pre-show tastings and dinners. Reserve Tastings Music + Wine Festivals offer concerts ranging from 4 hours of music by various artists including Mindi Abair & the Boneshakers to multi-day festivals. Plus there are options to join a wine and food pairing dinner and meet & greet session. Upcoming festivals are scheduled for Nov. 9 in Vallejo, CA and Nov. 15-17 in Punta Gorda, FL.
