About a year ago, my boyfriend and I were at a nice Italian restaurant and we could not decide on a wine to enjoy. We asked our server for a recommendation. He suggested their highlighted wine of the night – 19 Crimes Red Blend. We had not heard of 19 Crimes and my boyfriend was a bit skeptical of a blend, but we took the suggestion. 19 Crimes has been our #1 wine, our favorite, our go-to, ever since.

4 Things You Need to Host a Vinyl Party
I know my boyfriend loves to spend time with me, but he occasionally needs guy time. When you can get together with your friends only once a month due to family and work obligations, you better make it count! Theme parties are a great way to create a memorable experience for your friends. With records becoming more and more popular again, having a Vinyl Party is a great way to interact with friends. Here are the essentials for your stellar vinyl party:
19 Crimes Wine + Living Wine Labels App
Since 19 Crimes wine features real convicts from a historical event, you can use the Living Wine Labels app to hear the story of the convict on the bottle. Each wine has a different convict and a different story. Just open the app, point it at the bottle, and watch the character come to life! Download the app now.
If you collect corks, you are in for a treat. 19 Crimes corks each have one of the crimes listed on it. It’s a neat feature and a great way to get a history lesson.
You can’t have a party without wine, and you can’t have wine without a charcuterie board. Charcuterie boards usually have a variety of meat, cheese and fruit to compliment the wine.
19 Crimes Red Blend has notes of vanilla, chocolate and blackberry. The Cabernet Sauvignon also has a pleasant vanilla aroma with hints of red currants and chocolate. The Banished is a dark red wine with chocolate and vanilla aromatics with notes of plum.
This charcuterie board includes rye bread, peppered salami, porter-infused Irish cheddar cheese, goat cheese, plums, dark sweet cherries, and dark chocolate. If you are not a pro at pairing food with wine, that’s okay! Select items that are an obvious compliment (like the chocolate and plums), and take a risk with the rest and see how it turns out.
The great thing about technology is that it becomes more and more accessible over time. Record players are inexpensive and completely portable these days. They even have bluetooth so you can connect to a bigger speaker. This one is the the size of a briefcase!
Some Sweet Vinyl
Most cities have a record store, or you can find some online. Vintage vinyl is available and affordable. Even modern artists are putting their albums on vinyl. It is so trendy right now. If you want to get everyone involved, tell each of your guests to bring a vinyl record. You will end up with quite the eclectic collection to listen to and enjoy!
Add these four things together and you have the makings of a fun theme party that will be go down in history as one of the sweetest parties ever.
