Vinport Wines Releases Star Trek Themed Wines

It’s like the genius minds at Vinport Wines know my desires even before I do, as it never occurred to me that my life was missing “Star Trek”-themed wine until the company announced they were releasing three wines named after classic “Trek” episodes. For Vinport to send me all three – “The City on the Edge of Forever,” “Mirror Mirror,” and “The Trouble With Tribbles” — so I could review them based on my expertise in both wine drinking and “Trek” trivia would only be logical.  Hint, hint.

We Celebrate National Potato Chip Day With Chips (And Wine, Natch)

Chip party!

We came, we saw, we ate a lot of chips and drank a lot of wine. It’s National Potato Chip Day, and to celebrate our favorite snack food, we’ve created this video pairing the three new chip flavors with three different kinds of wine. At 11:00 in the morning. This was not a good idea.

“Wine isn’t for everyone, but it is definitely for me. Just tried for a sequence to the new album. Very exciting stuff. I can’t quite nail it down due to the being too drunk. #Tomorrow”

Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill got a little too cozy with a bottle of wine and sent out a series of tweets to update fans on the status of the band’s upcoming album. The gist? It will get done once he’s slept off his hangover. You gotta love an honest rock star, right? [NME]

Brad Pitt Angelina Jolie
  • You and your boo will never be Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but you can start drinking like them — the celeb couple is releasing their own line of wine, called Miraval, starting next month. The first bottle will be a 2012 pink rose. Classy! [Just Jared]
  • A few weeks ago, I told you about a new trend in dating where people ask their potential paramour about their credit score. Kinda sorta along the same lines, people are now also supposedly doing background checks before dating someone. Would you do this? [Hello Beautiful]

If you’re anything like us, your wine-drinking skills probably merit a trophy or two (examples: Most Improved Pallet and Best Balancing of Wine Glass On The Edge Of The Bathtub), so why not give yourself that trophy you deserve, in the form of a quirky DIY wine cork? If you still have your t-ball participation trophies floating around the attic, great, but if not, you’ll be able to find cheap (and delightfully flamboyant) trophies at your local thrift store for a buck or two. The only other supplies needed are a fresh cork and superglue. Oh, and some Merlot to sip while you get crafty. [Country Living]
