To us, there’s nothing more aptly paired than a glass of fine wine and a good read. Whether your glass holds a light, crisp white or a bold, silky red, there’s just something so enthralling about sipping your favorite profile and getting lost in the pages of a great book — and fall is the perfect time to do so. The sun sets sooner, the leaves start to change and the temperature drops just enough to warrant breaking out the fuzzy socks and thick blankets.
So without further ado, we’d like to introduce our Fall Book Pairings list, put together by one of our members, Bethany (@winebookedb on Instagram). This list features a novel for each of our wines, from a steamy romance paired with Profile One to an edge-of-your-couch-cushion murder mystery paired with Profile Six. Which book will you be tapping into this fall?
