The Oscars, Your PJs, Wine + Popcorn Pairings (+ Hoping Leonardo DiCaprio Wins!)

With the 2016 Oscars around the corner, the question on everyone’s mind is whether or not (my love) Leonardo DiCaprio will finally win a tiny gold man!

Okay, well maybe not everyone, but, it’s certainly on my mind.

So, you know I’ll be sitting at home just waiting… and waiting, and mentally preparing my angry Facebook status rant/happy Facebook status rant-dependent on outcome.

But whether you plan to go to a viewing party or hang out at home, our friends at SkinnyGirl served up a few fab wine and popcorn (yes, you read right) pairings for Hollywood’s biggest night!

Before we go any further, let’s talk about SkinnyGirls wines:

The SkinnyGirl wine portfolio includes eight different types of 750ml bottles, each at approximately 100 calories per .5oz serving, with 12% ABV and retailing for about $11 – $15 USD per bottle.

The eight varieties are:

  • Pinot Noir
  • Chardonnay
  • Pinot Grigio
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Moscato
  • California White
  • California Red
  • California Rose


The Pairings



Skinnygirl Chardonnay offers complex aromas of white peach, a hint of French oak vanilla, and a whisper of orange blossoms:

  • Pair butter popcorn with Skinnygirl Chardonnay
    • The light finish and crisp acidity of Chardonnay pairs well with classic butter popcorn

Pinot Noir

Skinnygirl Pinot Noir contains aromas of dark cherry and flavors of dark cherry, toasted oak and vanilla:

  • Pair white cheddar popcorn with Skinnygirl Pinot Noir
    • The flavors of dark cherry, toasted oak and vanilla in Pinot Noir bring out the hint of white cheddar in the popcorn


Skinnygirl Moscato contains refreshing tropical fruit and delicate honey aromas that offer a lighteffervescent taste with notes of pear, peach and mango:

  • Pair Skinnygirl Moscato with spicy chipotle popcorn
    • The light effervescent taste with notes of pear, peach and mango in Moscato tone down the firey kick of spicy chipotle popcorn

Pinot Grigio

Skinnygirl Pinot Grigio offers rich aromas of tropical fruit balanced with a hint of natural grape sweetness

  • Pair Skinnygirl Pinot Grigio with jalapeño popcorn
    • The sweet notes of Pinot Grigio bring out the mild mix of spice and salt in the jalapeño popcorn.\


Cheers! … and

C’mon, Leo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
