HAPPY HOUR PAIRINGS
HAPPY HOUR GONE VIRTUAL

Happy Hour Pairings

If you haven't tried hosting a virtual happy hour yet, there is no better time than the present. Send an invite out to your family and friends, make sure you have your wine and appetizers ready, and enjoy their company from your comfy couch.


HOW TO HOST A SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR
  • KIS: Keep it small. The smaller the happy hour, the more time for every one to catch up with each other and the more real the conversation is.
  • Theme-Away: Host a game night, play trivia, begin a book club, dress for a decade: setting a theme can bring some light-hearted fun to the awkward grid screens we're getting used to.
  • Food and Drinks Before You Start: Getting up and down to check on the oven or refresh your drink is cumbersome. Set everything up so that you are ready to be present, relax, listen, and truly engage with your friends and family.

POMMERY BRUT

Elegant and lively. Small assertive notes of red fruits. A rounded, rich, delicate wine that lingers in the mouth. In short, a clean taste with no dryness.

PAIR WITH: Draeger's Classic Spinach Dip

The fine, dry bubbles will cut through yet not overwhelm the tangy mayonnaise of the dip.

VOLPAIA 2018 CHIANTI CLASSICO

Made with 100% organic grapes, this Chianti is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. Vivid ruby color and a strong nose of fresh red fruit with hints of cherry. A well-structured wine with a fruity finish.

PAIR WITH: Draeger's Grana Pandano

One of the best pairings for Chianti is an umami flavored cheese, like Draeger's hand-selected Grana Pandano. Made from cow's milk and aged 18 months, this cheese is robust and slightly salty with a nutty, buttey finish.

DOMAINE DU VIEUX LAZARET 2016 CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE

Ripe berry flavors infused with hints of baking spices, rose petals and cracked pepper fill the mouth and satiate the palate. Full-bodied, fresh and alive with an irresistible vibrancy.

PAIR WITH: Draeger's Mini Beef Arams

Roast Beef and creamy horseradish sauce, dressed with watercress, oven roasted tomatoes and chives, this meaty and somewhat spicy small bite can perfectly stand up to this fullbodied, piquant red wine.
