If you’ve got the wine and you’ve got the woman, what are the songs that get it all in the mood?

Well, this all began with Let It Wine (from Italy = IT) contacting me in newsletter form. Their tagline: Dedicated to anyone in love with or just curious about the vast universe of wine! One of their stories is “Songs Dedicated to Wine.” I thought, that’s cool, and have now followed it through as a good topic. I’ve taken a few of their suggestions to pique your curiosity, but I also took it a bit further searching on “songs about wine” on YouTube. Then, I hit a compilation, created by Rebecca Litovsky. It’s the last YouTube connection at the bottom of this page. Well worth your time, it’s just over a half hour of listening, with some really great stuff.

A compilation of my favorite wine songs from different genres, with my own photos from Napa Valley, California; Tuscany, Italy; and Mendoza, Argentina. The perfect video to watch and listen to, wine glass in hand. For travel tips, visit my blog: Rebecca’s International Kitchen

Wine, Women, and Songs…

I’ve found ones on YouTube without ads to start the video. I don’t enjoy having to wait. So no having to wait…unless YouTube has changed the conditions. (I apologize, if that’s happened.)

My first one, because I’ve got the man, and I know this one to be personally true, is

  • Joni Mitchell, I Could Drink a Case of You

  • Marvin Gaye, I Heard It Through The Grapevine

  • UB40, Red, Red Wine

  • Eric Clapton, Bottle of Red Wine

  • Franz Ferdinand, Wine In The Afternoon

  • Rebecca Litovsky’s compilation with songs of wine in them from Rebecca Litovsky, Published on Jun 27, 2014.

It includes the following:

  • Days of Wine and Roses, Frank Sinatra
  • W-I-N-E, The Hollywood Flames
  • Tiny Bubbles, Don Ho
  • Summer Wine, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood
  • A Steel Guitar and a Glass of Wine, Paul Anka
  • Strawberry Wine, Dena Carter
  • Elderberry Wine, Elton John
  • Red Wine, Mistakes, Mythology, Jack Johnson
  • Two more bottles of Wine, Emmy Lou Harris

I’m ending this list at 12 minutes into Rebecca’s compilation. She’s got a (little over) a half hour production. Check it out. It’s well worth your time, even if it’s only background music. It’s all dedicated to wine, from this woman, and songs.
