Wine Pairing with Social Media

This is a handy guide to getting more out of social media by knowing the basic principles of social media and wine pairing.

Facebook = Cabernet Sauvignon
California Cabernet, Bordeaux and Bordeaux-style blends are terrific with scheduling posts. The firm tannins in these wines refresh the palate after each upload.

Twitter = Pinot Noir
Tweets made with ingredients like hashtags and short videos taste great with reds like Pinot Noir and Dolcetto, which are light-bodied but full of savory depth.

LinkedIn = Chardonnay
Silky whites—for instance, Chardonnays from British Columbia, Chile or Australia—are delicious with commenting on group forums, engaging updates or any kind of professional-related post.

Instagram = Merlot
Because a great many Merlots are medium-bodied they tend to pair well with spectacular Instagram posts with behind-the-scenes access or exclusive content.

Here’s a reference sheet to compliment your social media marketing efforts.
