Best Binge-Worthy Documentaries + Wine Pairings

Our Favorite TV Binging documentaries - Pair with your favorite wine and prepare for relaxation

They say all you need is love, but we’d argue that it helps to have something interesting to watch and a lovely bottle of wine with which to binge. If you’re spending evenings in this month (which you have permission to do, even on Valentine’s Day) then perhaps one of these documentaries will keep you warm on a winter’s night. If not, these wines certainly will.
