The subject of wine can often be overwhelming to those who aren't, like, sommeliers — if you've ever come face-to-face with a wine lover, you know they can totally be intimidating. The topic of wine is so diverse and so extensive, in fact, that it can be hard for most average wine drinkers to put the energy into wrapping their heads around it all. Hey, it's basically a life-long education anyway.
But the truth is, there are plenty of people around the world who love wine and don't concern themselves with where it comes from, or what kind of grapes it was made with, or how old it is. That type of information is only interesting for some wine drinkers. Nonetheless, wine talk tends to lend itself to high brow chit chat that can feel really exclusive if you're not as interested in the complexities of wine.
That said, there are tons of playful wines that have come onto the market using pop culture themes and references to appeal to the more low-key wine drinkers. If you're into wine but not about all the trivia and facts, you'll probably enjoy these thematic wines that aim to bring wine-lovers and wine-sorta-lovers alike together:
I mean, of course there's a The Bachelor-themed wine. Are you even surprised?
Will you accept this rosé? No better wine to watch The Bachelorette with than with this!
Chardonnay is a great wine for entertaining, as it appeals to lots of different wine drinkers, which is totally perfect for this festival-themed wine.
Grateful Dead Wine
This red-blend is like a house wine, it's great for a mixed group of wine-lovers and Grateful Dead fans.
Rolling Stones Wine
This full-bodied red is bold and flavorful, not dissimilar to your average Rolling Stones fan.
Downton Abbey Wine
This Californian wine totally mimics the authentic Bordeaux wines consumed on the show, with an updated twist.
Silence Of The Lambs Wine
"I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti." Yes, of course there's a Chianti, and a Pinot Grigio if you're looking for something a little less grim.
Princess Bride Wine
This limited edition wine is an adorable keepsake from the film, but also a really good wine, you know, if you want to actually drink it and not just keep it on a shelf for cuteness.
