Your Wine + Rom Com Pairing Guide

We’ve gathered up our list of favorite iconic rom-coms and femme fatale performances— and found the perfect Olema wine pairing for each. So pull up your favorite streaming site and pour yourself a glass! 

“Please, bore someone else with your questions.”
The Devil Wears Prada + Pinot Noir

Complex. Chic. High-fashion: all ways to describe the iconic supervillain Miranda Priestly… and the Olema Pinot Noir. Plus, we can all agree that Pinot Noir has to be what’s in Miranda’s glass at the end of a long day: the light-bodied and ultra-layered grape variety is easily the Prada of the wine world.   


“On Wednesdays we wear pink.”
Mean Girls + Rosé 

Get in, losers – we’re drinking rosé. On the outside, it may look simple: an appealing glass of pale pink wine; a perfectly put-together early-2000s outfit and plastic tiara.  But beneath the surface, the Plastics are a lot more complex, like a thoughtfully crafted Olema Côte de Provence Rosé, with just the right balance of vibrancy and fruit-forwardness. 


“I’ll have what she’s having.”
When Harry Met Sally + Cabernet Sauvignon

The King of Grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon) is the perfect match for the Queens of Rom Coms: Nora Ephron and Meg Ryan (with honorable mention to Carrie Fisher in her iconic best friend role). Bold and powerful, yet not without suave sultriness and effortless grace. 


“Frost yourself.”
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
+ Crémant de Loire Sparkling Brut

Manipulative mind-games aside, a glass of bubbly is the perfect match for those days when you just want to throw on a yellow floor-length evening gown and belt out “You’re So Vain.” Effervescent and as dazzling as a gazillion-karat diamond necklace, the Olema Sparkling Brut makes every day a celebration – even those 10 days when you’re trying to further your career while intentionally sabotoging a relationship. 


“As if!” – Chardonnay + Clueless 

Chardonnay is the Cher Horowitz of white wines: approachable and fruit-forward with just the right amount of zippy acidity— something you can’t help but love (even if their reputations do get scrutinized on occasion).

How do Wine Clubs Work?

In this first post in our Olema FAQs series, we’re tackling one of our most frequently asked questions: how do wine clubs work? 

The beautiful thing about wine clubs is their variety. Even within the Olema wine club lineup, we have a range of options to suit your preference on wines, delivery frequency, and quantities. 

Which club is right for you?

Subscription Clubs 

Subscription clubs are for those who want to receive Olema wines in regular increments throughout the year. How often? That’s up to you! We have both quarterly and monthly club options, so you can receive wine four times a year OR once a month. 

For both monthly and quarterly subscription clubs, we have both 6- and 12-bottle options, and with every shipment, you have the option to skip. Cancel anytime – no commitment required and no questions asked! Six-bottle shipments average $120 each + $5 flat-rate shipping; 12-bottle shipments average $240 + $10 flat-rate shipping. Learn more and sign up on our website here.

One-Cent Shipping Club

One of the hardest parts of the wine-ordering experience is shipping. Wine shipping gets expensive very quickly due to the weight of the package and the distance it needs to travel. So we sat down and came up with a plan: what if you could pay a single flat rate once and get free shipping all year long? Enter the One-Cent Shipping Club: you pay $75 once, and on all future orders for an entire year, you’ll receive an automated shipping discount so you only pay a penny in shipping per order. If you’re an Olema fan who wants to choose your own wines on your own time, the One-Cent Shipping Club is the perfect fit for you.
