In honour of Valentine’s Day and to celebrate iconic women from the last two centuries, Corney & Barrow Wine Merchants have created some inspired pairings to assist you in finding your perfect tipple.
Elizabeth Taylor & Grenache
Elizabeth Taylor always radiated confidence. Her personality attracted and impressed the boldest men. We’ve paired her with a punchy, full of flavour Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Spéciale Tardieu-Laurent decadently ripe fruit and means business!
Marilyn Monroe & Champagne
The beautiful Marilyn Monroe’s favourite drink was Champagne; she even took a Champagne bath once! She deserves something elegant and sophisticated, just like our Champagne Delamotte Blanc de Blancs.
Ingrid Bergman & Pedro Ximenez
Ingrid Bergman’s guilty pleasure was ice cream. Paired with San Emilio Pedro Ximenez, it’s a decadent treat. We’re sure Ingrid would have loved it too!
Sophia Loren & Syrah
Just like Sophia Loren, Syrah is intense, sexy and gallant. La Jonction Syrah Cuvée matches perfectly; it will pass through ages without a wrinkle!
Meryl Streep & Viognier
Cited in the media as the “best actress of her generation” for her versatility in her roles, Meryl Streep is classy, generous and kind. We’ve paired her with a full bodied Terre de Lumière Viognier from Celliers Jean d’Alibert, refined yet forceful in character.
Audrey Hepburn & Pinot Grigio
Loved by all, Audrey Hepburn was graceful, delicate and humble… just like this fresh Pinot Grigio from La Tunella!
