Wine and Guitar

Pic a great guitar tune and pick a bottle to match.

Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds – Live at Radio City
Bartender

I usually throw this one on after a good meaty meal at the cottage. Perfect while shuffling the cards prior to my next Euchre win. (Who knows how to spell that anyway!). And the wine – “Bartender please, Fill my glass for me with the wine you gave Jesus that set him free after 3 days in the ground……”
The hardest grape to grow in the world – A smooth new world (Cali or NZ) bottle of Pinot Noir does it for me.

Pearl Jam
Crazy Mary

A meaty Rioja is a great match with Eddie Vedder’s Haunting voice. That or a bottle of scotch!
“Take a bottle, drink it down, pass it around”

    I personally love your pairings of wine and guitar. I love playing songs out by the Avett Brothers. They are brothers from Concord North Carolina who sing harmoniously together backed a blue-grassy and rock ensemble. I am looking for a great wine to pair with a song of theirs called ‘November Blue’. I would appreciate any help. Give it a listen. There is a good version song solo by Scott Avett, one of the brothers. Give a couple of their songs a listen and tell me what to slug next time I play them.

    Thanks Get your wine on

    Shaun

    I would pair the Avett Bro’s with a wine that won’t stain your beard. Maybe pour red wine in a champagne glass so the red stuff don’t get hair in it. Pair it with something simple that don’t smell to great but goes down smooth. Like this http://www.getyourwineon.ca/2011/05/perfect-outdoor-wines/

    I’ll give it a go with the argentinian malbec and let you know how it goes. I will also take your advice on the champagne glass, or maybe to class it up I will pour the malbec into a old beer bottle and hammer it that way. It will then have the visual presentation that I envision the taste should have. Beauty pick.
