Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

For our final episode on summer sequels, we’re leanin’ real hard into the nostalgia vibe.  Teenage Mutant Turtles II is a film that brings forth fond memories for all of us, and it’s something I’m honestly happy to go back and check out after all these years.

I won’t exactly say the film ages well, but…it does hold up exactly like I thought it would.  It’s awkwardly funny, with cheesy one-liners and clunky special effects.  And lots and lots of pizza.

With that in mind, I’ve selected a couple of wines that pair well with pizza.

Red Zinfandel is a classic pizza pairing, and Valravn, from Skurnik Winery, is no exception.  Fruit-forward, medium-bodied, and a little spicy, this fun wine will go with most pizzas, especially those with heavier, meatier toppings.  I think Donatello would be especially pleased.  For more info, head this way.

If red wine ain’t your bag, a rosé is another fine option for pizza.  Actually, rosé is a great pair with just a ton of foods, especially anything summery you can cook on the grill:  Think burgers, barbecue, and fried chicken.  This Oregon rosé from A to Z Winery is awesome example.  It’s crisp, loaded with citrus and melon flavors, and it’s also very refreshing.  These wines get a bad rep on account of White Zinfandel–which is a totally different thing–so they’re definitely worth a look.  Side note, I’ve been to this winery, and it’s beautiful.  To learn a little more, click here.
