Despite the sea of make-up, the padding, the drama, and the pagentry that is reality TV, RuPaul's Drag Race touches on something real: It's not just about destroying on the runway, it's about embracing your true-fabulous-self. Only in my dreams am I as sassy and real as RuPaul, and I'm not sure how many glasses of wine it would take for me to read like these gorgeous queens (but I'm determined to find out). At the very least while watching this show, I need a wine that SLAYS.
For this wine pairing challenge I'm looking for a wine with "Confidence, Uniqueness, Nerve and Talent" (#RuPaulsWinePairing). The La Boutanche Riesling has it all. This wine is giving me (a whole litre of) chuggable, snappy, realness. This wine doesn't give a fuuuuck, girl.
WINE: La Boutanche Riesling is the project of Selection Massale and winemaker Andi Knauss. It is a nauturally fermented Riesling which is an unconventional style of winemaking in Germany; this expression of authenticity should be celebrated. Its pink lady glamour and lime zest sass makes me want to vogue like no one is watching.
PAIRING: RuPaul's Drag Race Season 9.
