By Yolanda Shoshana

Pumpkin spice isn’t the only thing that arrives during Autumn. The season brings in the cold weather, making it the perfect time to snuggle up to your boo and enjoy some red wine to keep you warm. It’s been said that red wine is an aphrodisiac for love. According to Euripides, the Greek tragedian who was a wine connoisseur, “where is no wine there is no love.”

Here are some celebrity reds and date night ideas to enjoy during the crisp and cold months:

LVE Cabernet Sauvignon, Raymond Vineyards

Soul singer John Legend has a collection of wines called LVE produced in Napa Valley. His Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of blackberries, dark chocolate, and black tea. Can’t you imagine Chrissy Teigen making a dish from her cookbook for Legend and pairing it with some of his wine? File that under relationship goals! Put on some of Legend’s slow jams, sip some LVE, and make it a very romantic night.

Marilyn Merlot, Marilyn Wines

You know you are an icon when you’ve passed away and you end up with your own wine. Marilyn Merlot is inspired by none other than Marilyn Monroe. If Monroe’s sassy attitude could be put in a bottle, this wine would be the answer. It’s easy to assume this wine is mainly for fun, but it’s actually a high-quality wine produced in Napa Valley that’s been going strong since 1981. Vanilla and tart cherries will flirt with your palate. When you are feeling extra frisky, maybe even a bit adventurous with your partner, this wine is the one.

Pinot by Tituss, PBTB Wines

If you have ever watched the Netflix hit, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, you are probably familiar with the character Titus Andromedon, played by Tituss Burgess. In season one, his character sang a song called “Peeno Noir.” The song became a viral hit, which lead to Burgess creating a Pinot Noir wine. The actor has said that the wine is meant to be enjoyed by all the fabulous “Kings and Kweens.” This fun and fruity wine is great for a Netflix and chill night or some hold me, let’s Hulu.

The Director’s Merlot, Frances Ford Coppola Winery

Coppola has been in the wine game for a while. His wines tend to be inspired by the art of storytelling and filmmaking, so they have unique names to reflect that. The Director’s Merlot is a juicy and succulent red that is a good example of a wine from Sonoma. Coppola has probably won more awards for his wine than his films. This Merlot is perfect to enjoy while relaxing by the fire and having a nice conversation with your love.

Drew’s Red Blend Pinot Noir, Barrymore Wine

Drew Barrymore is the perfect celebrity to have a wine. She knows how to have fun and live it up. She created her line of wines with the help of the California-based Carmel Road Winery. Her red blend is meant for every day sipping. Since it has notes of tobacco, spice, and fruit, it would be good paired with meat or something from a slow cooker. Long story short, when you are home for a nice, quiet meal with your partner, this is the perfect wine to choose.
