Today was moving day for VinePair, so a lot of us worked from home. One benefit of working from the comfort of your apartment is being able to drink wine (even though we do that in the office, too). So we brought out a delicious bottle of white to enjoy on this lovely Friday, but […]
Having a spring picnic is one of those activities that works for any occasion – a family outing, a date, smoothing things over with an enemy… And since a picnic is a form of a meal, there’s no denying that it should involve alcohol every time. While for some white wine might be the obvious spring […]
Our Friday went from calm to raucous in under a minute. Why? because the folks at Nipyata sent us (you guessed it) a piñata filled with nips of alcohol. The premise of Nipyata is pretty simple, the company takes a piñata, fills it with booze, and ships it off to you, along with the requisite blindfold and […]
Should you be gulping a cold one instead of a protein shake after a workout? According to recent research, the answer might be yes. Charlie Bamforth, professor of brewing sciences at the University of California, Davis, says when consumed in moderation, beer contains nutrients, among them selenium (which contains antioxidants), B vitamins (which aid in energy), […]
While 4/20 may be known as the day for celebrating one specific herb in particular, we at VinePair think 4/20 should be a celebration of all herbs, both those that are still gaining legality and those that are already in your garden and kitchen cupboard.

Fancy cheese is all fine and well, but this Friday, we decided to grab some Boursin spreadable cheese from our local bodega to pair with a bottle of Le Petit Coquerel Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. Instead of pouring a glass in our usual office setting, we decided to head over to the park to […]
If you’re a fan of spirits, it’s highly possible that you’ve had one or two that’ve been flavored before – even Fireball counts! – but did you know you could make your own version of cranberry-flavored vodka or jalapeño infused tequila?
This Friday, we treated ourselves to a box of warm, sugar-dripping donuts. While donuts are typically an accompaniment to coffee, the end of the week calls for something a little bit stronger. We were in a whiskey kind of mood, so we grabbed a bottle of Tap 357 Maple Whisky, which is traditional Canadian whisky […]
One of the nastiest winters in memory here in North America has come to a close, and the first hints of spring weather have us dreaming of crisp white wines, chilled reds, and, of course, dry rosés. This year we’ll be adding Corsica’s uniquely delicious wines to our summer wine sipping routine — along with […]
One of the things we believe in here at VinePair is that you can pair wine with anything. So with Easter around the corner, we decided to challenge ourselves to find two wines that cut nicely through the intense sugary flavor of both Peeps and Cadbury Creme Eggs.
