Are you a lover of wine? Is wine o’ clock your favorite time of day? Are you a no wine left behind kind of person? That’s what we’re chatting about today, wine!
National Wine Day is on May 25th, so we thought the best way to celebrate would be to ensure that you maximize your wine time with the perfect audiobook. We’ve paired eight of the most popular wines with audiobooks that we think will go perfectly with whatever you’re sipping. And if wine isn’t your thing, I’m sorry, but you can’t sip with us!
Keep reading for some grape recommendations, oh, and don’t forget your vino!
Lively, light, and bubbly. All words that describe the celebratory glass of champagne. But, they also work when describing Ross Mathews. If you’re in the mood to pop some champagne, sit back, and listen to a friend’s exciting tales — from horrifying to hilarious — then you’ll want to check out Name Drop from Ross Mathews. From judging on Ru Paul’s Drag Race to his Christmas with the Kardashians, Mathews’ stories make the perfect pair with a glass of bubbly.
Nothing like a nice glass of chardonnay after a long day. If this crisp and light libation is your wine of choice, we recommend pairing it with an equally crisp and light listen. Why not check out an inspiring up-lit audiobook like When We Were Vikings. This listen follows Zelda on her quest to become legendary, which tests her heroism, her love for her brother, and her Viking strength. This story will make you laugh, cry, and feel all the feels.
Does your sweet tooth have you reaching for something sweet to sip on, like a nice glass of riesling wine? Then, you’ll need a sweet and moving story to go along with it, won’t you? We recommend In Five Years by Rebecca Serle. In Five Years follows Dannie, a lawyer who always plays by the rules, but then one night she has a vision of her future that could change her life forever. This will be the perfect love story to accompany your riesling, but it’s not the love story you’d expect.
Not to be biased, but pinot grigio is my personal favorite wine and therefore the best choice. So, what kind of audiobook would go well with a light and refreshing glass of the good stuff? Check out Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson. This audiobook tells the story of Lillian who agrees to be the caretaker to two children. The catch? Both children spontaneously combust when they get agitated.
Rosé all day, baby!! This wine is pink, it’s fun, it’s summer in a glass. So, what better audiobook to listen to while sippin’ on some sunshine than Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner. Pop on some sunnies and soak up the sun while you listen to this deliciously funny and totally unpausable audiobook about family, friendship, and figuring out what matters most.
Ah, you’re drinking cabernet sauvingon. This automatically means you’re someone with great sophistication, I don’t make the rules. This wine is rich and robust, so you’ll want to listen to something deep and moving, like a literary fiction listen. We recommend, Everything I Never Told You — a family drama that centers on the death of the Lee family’s middle child, Lydia. A family portrait is painted as you uncover the struggles that each family member faces as they deal with this tragedy, while also trying to understand one another.
Did you know that pinot noir is made from some of the oldest grapes in the world? If you’re go-to wine is pinot noir, then you’re probably looking for something classic to listen to next. Our recommendation would be 1984 by George Orwell. Maybe you never got around to reading this classic dystopian novel (even though it was assigned in English class, oops) or maybe you’re revisiting it after reading it so long ago. Either way, this will go great with your smooth glass of pinot.
Merlot is described as being smooth, spicy, lush, and sensual. So, if that’s the vibe that’s filling your cup today, then the best audiobook to dive into is something sexy to accompany you while it you’re sipping on your red wine. The Business of Lovers, a book about the family you have, the families you create, and all the sexy moments in between, shows us that love—and lust—has a way of twisting the best-laid plans.
