wine expert selects wines that go best with current reality TV shows.
Most reality TV fans over the age of 21, ahem, know that the only way to make it through yet another episode of, say, Big Brother is with an adult beverage at hand, usually a bottle of Nyquil. Quoted in the Boston Herald, wine expert Karen MacNeil takes the high road and suggests wines that go well with our current slate of reality TV shows. Her selections: Survivor Vanuatu: cote-rotie (the “vinous equivalent of the primal scream”). Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: sherry (“the hippest, most stylish wine of all”). The Bachelor: pinot noir. Average Joe 4: shiraz. Growing up Gotti: sauvignon blanc (“sassy, wild, dangerous”). Other reality TV wine pairings are detailed on her web site, including cabernet sauvignon for The Amazing Race (“resilient enough to endure just about anything”).
