Make your Oscar night *pop*

The Oscars: the most magical night of glamour and elegance that we can’t wait to watch. What will she wear, will he finally win an Oscar, what will we drink?! This year, let’s do something a bit different to spice up your Oscar watch party with an unexpected, yet crowd-pleasing (and easy on the wallet) pairing: sparkling wine and popcorn! Whether you’re having a big blow out bash, a casual watch party, or flying solo on the couch this year, sparkling wine can help give your viewing experience the POP you’re craving with these suggested pairings:


If you like those speeches short and *sweet*…
Kettle Corn Popcorn and Mionetto il Prosecco is your winner! With aromas of green apple and peaches, Prosecco is ideal to be enjoyed with the sweet, yet salty, Kettle Corn Popcorn. Perfect for an after-dinner treat while enjoying the show, this pairing will sweeten up your night and your palate.


You showing a little leg this year…
Sometimes you have to spice it up, right? Add a kick to your viewing menu with Cajun-Spiced Popcorn paired with Freixenet Brut. It’s crisp and clean taste will perfectly balance the spicy flavors of the popcorn, keeping your eyes glued to the red carpet in search of this year’s #bestdressed.

Gruet Blanc des Blancs

Will Leonardo DiCaprio take one home, finally…
Go big or go home with an elegant Hollywood-themed viewing party with lots of sequins, gold and bubbles! A classic theme calls for a classic pairing, Theatre-Style Buttered Popcorn paired with Gruet Blanc des Blancs. The almond and citrus notes of the wine complement the rich buttery (and sometimes salty) notes of the popcorn. If you’re feeling a little DIY, paint the bottom of your stemware with gold spray paint to resemble the Oscar statutes. Or use glittery gold pens to write your guests names on the glasses for a personal touch.
