This week, we’re listening to all the tunes we need to beat the summer heat! Start off with … well, of course, “Yellow Submarine” by the Beatles, move on to “Seaside” by the Kooks, sink your teeth into the hilarious song, “Tale of the Oyster,” by Cole Porter (and maybe pop one in your mouth, too!), and end with the anthem of all summer anthems, “Surfin’ USA” by the Beach Boys.

I am of the belief that no dish is complete without pasta (come on, you know I’m right!) so this week we’re digging into the it’s-on-every-Italian-menu-in-summertime seafood linguine in a light tomato sauce paired with the 2013 Cakebread Cellars Chardonnay. Beautiful balance and a long finish are enhanced by a touch of refreshing minerality and make it a perfect pairing for this flavorful dish and our fun-loving summer tunes!

Kala Maxym curates Sensory Wellness events for corporate and private clients
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.
"Pre-Paired" for October 2022 explores orange wines, cheeses and chocolates, and a playlist for fall!
The color orange heralds a change of seasons in much of the world. This month we’re unlocking the energy, power, and play of our five senses through all things orange: wine, cheese, chocolate, and music! 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!
