With October comes the full immersion into everything pumpkin spice, living vicariously through our fantasy football teams and the dread that winter is coming. With the cooler fall weather and cozy outfits, it’s only natural to be curious about what’s coming to Netflix next month. Fear not, we have compiled the best movies, documentaries, series and specials along with their perfect accompaniment. Cheers to your October wine and Netflix pairings!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (October 1)
With one of the most iconic opening scenes, it feels right just to grab yourself a cheese danish and open a bottle sauvignon blanc.
Might we suggest: Fernlands Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (October 1)
In a classic celebration of youth and everything Chicago, a new world riesling sounded like the perfect thirst quencher. Call in sick and pick up a Chicago dog. Danke schoen, darling.
Our suggestion: Frisk Prickly Riesling
Russell Peters: Almost Famous (October 7)
What’s fun and something you’re okay with wasting a little bit of when you spit up from laughter? Prosecco. Russell Peters is a funny, funny man and you need something drinkable to keep you hydrated.
Our suggestion: Prima Perla Prosecco di Treviso
Justin Timberlake and the Tennessee Kids (October 12th)
While I may be biased in this selection, how can you go wrong with an evening of musical stylings from this beautiful man?! [Insert apologies to all the guys at 111 Lex] As a Tennessee native himself, what better way to get in the mood by combining a light, fruity red wine with the second best thing to come from the volunteer state, whiskey.
Our suggestion: Sangria with a bottle of Vignobles Bulliat – Morgon Beaujolais Villages, 1 cup of High West American Prairie Bourbon, ¼ cup of Cointreau and pound of mixed berries
This should get you nice and ready for our Whiskey Fest on October 15th!
Mascots (October 13th)
Mascots battle it out in this new comedy and what better way to enjoy the hilarity then by grabbing a smooth, fruity bottle of pinot noir.
Our suggestion: Freja Pinot Noir 2011
Haters Back Off (October 14th)
Because we’re all just internet stars in the making. Have some fun with a drink that will always love you back no matter what time of the year, rosé. Just like those 15 seconds of virality, think fresh, bright and simple.
Our suggestion: White Girl Rosé
Into the Inferno (October 28th)
One word: volcanoes. If we’re going to watch a natural wonder filled with liquid hot magma, we’d better have a drink to match. Bold, big and brooding.
Our suggestion: Predator Old Vine Zinfandel 2013
