After a long day in the office or a tiring day with kids, my favorite thing to do is listen to some relaxing music, have dinner and sip my favorite glass of wine. To me, music, wine and certain foods pair hand in hand and help create that relaxing environment you dream about after a long day.

I usually put on music that will relax me, depending on my mood but i’ve never actually thought about what music pairs well with the wine I am drinking and i’ve been filled with inspiration from this video by Cambria Winery that has made me think about new ways to relax with my favorite glass.

Kalei Yamanoha took on a challenge to pair two wines with music that will really awaken your senses, check out the first part below.

Wine and music go hand in hand and if you really focus on choosing the right music to pair with your wine, your senses will explode with relaxation, happiness or whatever mood your looking to put yourself in.

The Pinot Noir Waltz made for Cambria Benchbreak Pinot Noir makes me envision an afternoon, sitting outside on the porch, staring at the sun going down across a sunflower field (I know vivid), when I close my eyes and think about it, I can imagine it blissfully.

Chardonnay Shanty made for Cambria Benchbreak Chardonnay makes me think of lunch, in a beach side restaurant with my best friends.  Sipping fruity Chardonnay by the sea is something I will always love!

When you pair music certain music with wine, it tends to bring out the flavor and senses of the wine and everything around you.

As you sip your wine and listen to the music, it can take you through every sip just by the way it’s composed and really bring out a wonderful wine tasting experience that you never knew existed.


Musical pairings are a brand new approach to experiencing, learning, and talking about wine, this not only encourages exploration and conversation but helps with learning and experiencing the many ways to enjoy wine.

Cambria’s Benchbreak Chardonnay and Benchbreak Pinot Noir are estate grown and bottled, high quality, immensely flavorful wines that are expressive of California’s Santa Maria Valley, the wine-growing region where they’re from.
