Sip back and relax: Naked Grape and Sawmill Creek toast the new fall television line-up with a selection of wine pairings
Wine savant Euming Lee recommends a wine for sitcoms, dramas and reality shows
TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2011 /CNW/ - Wine pairing isn't just for cheese anymore: savvy sipper Euming Lee serves up tips on which fermentations will add flavour to your fall television line-up.
"We're always looking to pair a great wine with our meals, but wine is so much more than just an occasion based product," said Lee. "Like sinking into a show, enjoying a glass of wine is a simple way to end the day where we can wind down and escape our busy lifestyles."
What grape would best compliment the ladies of Wisteria Lane? Lee pairs a selection of blends with the upcoming season's most buzzed about shows. Whether it's a Merlot for a murder mystery or a Chardonnay for our beloved Seattle Grace doctors, there's a wine for you to sip back and relax with your favourite program.
Watch, drink and be merry:

excitement of the 1960s Jet Age.
Desperate Housewives and The Good Wife know a thing or two about being naked - physically and emotionally -
and should be paired with Naked Grape's Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot
We can always count on Meredith Grey and McDreamy to remind us what
really counts in life. Grey's Anatomy, much like Sawmill Creek's medium bodied Merlot, takes us back to a
place where life is simpler.
