It’s the 11th hour and you still don’t have a Halloween costume. Don’t worry, we’ve been there before too – a few too many times, in fact. But since you love to drink wine, why not incorporate vino into your costume? We all know you’re already going to be drinking it with your Halloween candy […]
The Wine Blog
Ah, The New York Times. You just can’t seem to stop publishing tone-deaf articles about Shonda Rhimes. Allesandra Stanley’s insulting piece about angry black women has a follow up, in the Dining and Wine section, no less. Yesterday saw the publication of “Red Wine Is the Drink of Choice on ‘Scandal’ and ‘The Good Wife’” by […]
We’re big fans of spy movies here at VinePair, so when a spy-themed speakeasy opened steps away from our offices in the East Village of NYC, we knew we had to check it out. Called Dead Drop, you enter the bar via a staircase into the basement of the restaurant North River, where you’re greeted […]
As consumers of wine, we love when we’re able to enjoy not only the contents of our wine bottles, but the bottles and corks as well. Wine bottles and corks are the perfect canvas for decorating and a fun vessel for letting your creative juices flow.

With wine, beer and liquor all having a resurgence in the craft arena, it was only a matter of time before cider, a beverage that’s been made since at least 55 BC when the Romans discovered its production in Britain, would go the craft route as well – it doesn’t hurt either that cider is […]
As we begin to approach what’s predicted to be a particularly gruesome winter, we’ve already started to image what we can do to stay toasty inside. While number one in our hearts is most definitely a prescription for wine (shocker!), there is still room (in our hearts and our tummies) for other libations.
We’re suckers for ink. While none of the full-time members of VinePair currently have any tattoos – at least none that we know of – we love how beautiful they can look on other people. While years ago, tattoos might have been rare to find among wine lovers, they now seem to be everywhere, with […]
We all remember a time when Halloween was fun, when we dressed up in costumes, headed to parties and danced the night away, only to wake up the next morning still dressed as Darth Vader or Princess Leah, with a slight hangover but great memories. But now you’re a real adult, with responsibilities, and some […]
