We have had the great privilege of being present at any number of important milestones in our clients’ lives over the years of our business. One of the most meaningful is when we are there when a love story comes to live. We were overjoyed to offer a live music tasting to celebrate the impending nuptials of beautiful bride, Victoria, and handsome groom, Phi. The couple had known each other a long time before they became involved romantically, and it was such a treat to hear them gush about each other as we learned more about their love story and began working on the pairings. If you were inclined to wonder whether La vie is always en rose, we can assure you that with this couple, it is.

Here is one of the tastings we offered on the bridal shower program:

Music selection: “La vie en rose” by Edith Piaf
Wine selection: Tintoretto (sparkling wine with pomegranate juice)
Cheese: Délice de Bourgogne

Vicky and Phi met back in middle school, and both shared touching details of how their love has evolved over the past seven years. With this music, wine, and cheese pairing, we wanted to pay tribute to the early years of their love story. “La vie en rose” touches us with its beautiful lyrics and enticing melody.

“And when you speak, angels sing from above. Everyday words seem to turn into love songs. Give your heart and soul to me, and life will always be la vie en rose” the singer sings.

The tintoretto (pomegranate juice mixed with champagne resulting in a rose colored drink) represents the sparkle of their early romance: Phi told us that after a party junior year in college, he said to Vicky: “I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m crazy about you. Will you be my girlfriend?” The Délice de Bourgogne – a triple cream cheese from France – is a perfect cheese pairing here. It offsets the bubbles with a creaminess symbolizing the rich and steadfast love they share now.

If you are interested in hosting a private musical wine tasting of your own, please drop us a note!

The company was founded, as so many are, as kind of a side gig. I was working full-time in a technology company but I was also curious about bringing my background in music together with my growing love of wine. I wasn’t in love with how wine was taught, and I wasn’t in love with how classical music was marketed so I wondered if I could take the idea of a “flight” of wine and apply it to music. That’s how the idea of “tasting the music” was born.

The color orange heralds a change of seasons in much of the world.

We often associate the color orange with feelings of vibrance, enthusiasm, and energy, and we definitely feel those positive vibes when we pop open a bottle of orange wine!
