Classic Songs About Wine

These are the songs about wine that everybody knows. They undoubtedly will get stuck in your head as you’re drinking wine.

Red Red Wine by Neil Diamond

I know what you’re thinking, that’s a UB40 song! Well yes but, the original is by Neil Diamond from way back in 1968. Red Red Wine by UB40 is definitely more popular with its reggae flair but give the original a listen below. I got to be honest, I love red wine and even I don’t think I could dedicate an entire song to wine.

Red, red wine goes to my head
Makes me forget that I still need her so

Red, red wine, it’s up to you
All I can do I’ve done
Memories won’t go, memories won’t go”

Scenes from an Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel

Oh, that opening line just gets me every time! Such a classic song about wine.

"A bottle of white, a bottle of red
Perhaps a bottle of rose instead
We'll get a table near the street
In our old familiar place
You and I, face to face"

Summer Wine by Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood

I love the original by Nancy Sinatra but I must admit, Lana Del Rey does an excellent version of it as well, albeit a bit more haunting. This is always listed as one of the best songs about wine.

“Strawberries, cherries and an angel’s kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Oh, oh summer wine

I Will Drink the Wine by Frank Sinatra

"Someone said, drink the water, but I will drink the wine.
Someone said, take a poor man, rich don't have a dime.
So fool yourselves if you will, I just haven't got the time.
If you can drink the water, I will drink the wine."

Spill the Wine by Eric Burdon & War

I’ve been signing this song wrong my entire life….

Spill the wine and take that pearl,
Spill the wine and take that pearl.”

Hey Brother, Pour the Wine by Dean Martin

I feel like I need a bowl of spaghetti to listen to this wine song.

“Here we sit enjoying the shade
Drink the drink that I have made
Tell you why the day is sunny
I’m in love with lips of honey
Wait ’til you see the way she walks
Hey brother pour the wine

Lilac Wine by Nina Simone

I know a lot people like the Jeff Buckley version of this song but honestly, is there a better singer than Nina Simone?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
Listen to me, I cannot see clearly
Isn’t that she, coming to me nearly here?”

Champagne & Wine by Otis Redding

Champagne and wine
That’s what you gonna get
Champagne and wine
What it’s gonna be
Just as long girl you see about me
I’m gonna be, knocking on your door
I want the same love, that I had before, listen”

Melva’s Wine by Johnny Cash

"Every year about this time
My wife Melva made some wine
Every year about this time
The air is sweet as Melva's wine
And I sip her wine and I listen to the robin sings
And the river runs through Kingston Springs"

Kisses Sweeter than Wine by Jimmie Rodgers

“Because she had kisses sweeter than wine
She had, mmm, mmm, kisses sweeter than wine
(Sweeter than wine)”

Griechischer Wein by Udo Jürgens

Okay, so you know I own a wine tour company here in Chania, right? Well every time we have Germany visitors they force us to play this song for them. I have lots of videos of several groups of German tourist dancing and singing to this song about Greek wine. I had to include it among the songs about wine.

Rock Songs with Wine Lyrics

Most rock songs seem to sing about whiskey and getting drunk, but there are some that talk about wine.

Mexican Wine by Fountains of Wayne

Worth mentioning that Mexico does make some really great wines.

“But the sun still shines in the summer time
I’ll be yours if you’ll be mine
I tried to change, but I changed my mind
I think I’ll have another glass of Mexican Wine”

Fall In Love with Me by Iggy Pop

“You look so good to me
Here in this old saloon
Way back in West Berlin
A bottle of white wine
White wine and you

A table made of wood
And how I wish you would
Fall in love with me”

God of Wine by Third Eye Blind

The God of Wine is Dionysus for those that are wondering.

“The God of Wine comes
Crashing through the headlights of a car
That took you farther than
You thought you’d ever want to go
We can’t get back again
We can’t get back again”

Cooking Wine by Alkaline Trio

This was my favorite song my senior year of high school. I had to include it in my list of wine songs and songs with wine lyrics. Looking back, I really hope he wasn’t getting drunk on actual cooking wine. Twenty years later, I still remembered every single lyric.

“Sorry I’m late, I was out spoiling my liver
I couldn’t wait
The sun was up for far too long today
And I can’t see straight
But the two of you look awfully pretty
And I couldn’t wait
Been awake for far too long today
And is it strong enough to burn away the cooking wine?
And I’m just tired enough
If I close my eyes I’ll sleep for days
I’ll sleep for days

Sorry I’m late, I was out spoiling my liver
I couldn’t wait
The sun was up for far too long today
And I can’t see straight
But the two of you look awfully pretty
You’re fucking beautiful
And is it strong enough to burn away the cooking wine?
And I’m just tired enough
If I close my eyes I’ll sleep for days
I’ll sleep for days”

Theotoky by Oenos

A member of the Unraveling Wine Group sent me this wine song suggestion. It’s actually very cool conceptually. From their website: “All the songs are written under the influence of various wines from around the world and are named after the bottle.” There are songs about wine and then there are the songs that wine inspires.

Wine, Women, an’ Song by Whitesnake

“You can tell it’s wrong,
But I love wine, women an’ song
Wine, women an’ song, talking ’bout
Wine, women an’ song,
Wine, women an’ song,
Wine, women an’ song
You get what you can
But, don’t take too long
Wine, women an’ song”

White Wine by The Vernons

So many songs about red wine, nice to see a song about white wine as well.

"White wine she is so doll
White wine she makes them up
White wine she is so blue
White wine she ain't no fool"

Wine by The Electric Flag

This was another submission from the Unraveling Wine Facebook Group for songs about wine. Give it a listen and tell me what you think.

Country Songs About Wine

While most country songs talk about beer, there are a few great songs about wine in the country genre.

Strawberry Wine by Deana Carter

Full confession, I had never heard this song before making this list of songs about wine. Considering it has 60 million views on YouTube clearly I’ve been out of the loop.

Two More Bottles of Wine by Emmylou Harris

We came out west together with a common desire
The fever we had might’ve set the west coast on fire
Two months later got trouble in mind
Oh my baby moved out and left me behind
But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight
And I got two more bottles of wine
The way he left sure turned my head around
Seemed like overnight she just up and put me down
Ain’t gonna let it bother me today
I been workin’ and I’m too tired anyway
But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight
And I got two more bottles of wine

Wine, Women, and Song by Loretta Lynn

I’m just saying that that shit would not fly in my house.

“While I’m at home a workin’ and a slavin’ this way
You’re out a misbehavin’ spendin’ all of your pay
On wine women and song.
While I’m a makin’ beds you’re out a makin’ time
You rob my piggy bank and spend my last thin dime
On wine women and song.

Wine by Emily Reid

This wine song is a bit ridiculous but trust me, we’ve all been there. There are so many nights I’d rather be alone with wine than doing pretty much anything else. Check out these hilarious wine lyrics.

“So don’t you worry baby, fish away the weekend
I’ll call up a couple of my very best friends
Their names are Cabernet, Chardonnay, Rosé and Merlot
Even when you’re gone, all night long
I ain’t ever home alone with
Wine
We’re both getting better with time (yeah, yeah)
When I need to let go, it’s holding me by the hand
Good love comes and goes
So who needs a man when you’ve got wine
Wine

Cheap Wine and Cigarettes by Jess Moskaluke

Cheap wine and cigarettes
That kind of taste that you don't forget
You take me high and leave me a mess
Just like cheap wine and cigarettes
Hey yeah
Hey yeah

Dust on the Bottle by David Lee Murphy

I’m not a country girl but apparently this is a very classic Country song about wine. Have you heard it before?

Yesterday’s Wine by Willie Nelson

Okay, so I know I just said I wasn’t a country fan but I do love me some Willie Nelson.

“Yesterday’s wine
We’re yesterday’s wine
Aging with time
Like yesterday’s wine”

Good Friends and a Glass of Wine by LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes has the right idea with this wine song. What else do we need other than good friends and a glass of wine?

“A good friend and a glass of wine
Someone to say it’s gonna be alright
A good friend and a glass of wine
A little pick me up to get me through the night
We talk trash n’ we laugh and cry
That kind of therapy money can’t buy
Every now and then, every now and then
Every girl needs a good friend and a glass of wine”

No Body, No Crime By Taylor Swift

“Este’s a friend of mine
We meet up every Tuesday night for dinner and a glass of wine
Este’s been losin’ sleep
Her husband’s actin’ different, and it smells like infidelity
She says, “That ain’t my Merlot on his mouth
That ain’t my jewelry on our joint account”
No, there ain’t no doubt
I think I’m gonna call him out”

Hip-Hop Songs About Wine

Carlo Rossi by E-40

If you aren’t singing this song every time you’re in the wine aisle of the grocery store, then I don’t think we can be friends. And for the record, it’s um, the opposite of top of the line, but we’ve all been there.

“Top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi, Carlo Rossi
Top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi
Perkin’ off some of that top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi, Carlo Rossi
Top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi
Perkin’ off some of that top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi
Perkin’ off some of that top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi
Perkin’ off some of that top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi, Carlo Rossi
Perkin’ off some of that top of the line wine, Carlo Rossi”

Wine Lyrics by Notorious B.I.G.

Where would the Champagne industry be without Notorious B.I.G? I mean, it would probably be fine but very, um, colorless. Biggie Smalls rapped about Moet Chandon, Cristal, and Dom Perignon and put Champagne on the hip-hop map. The love was not reciprocated by the stuffy Champagne world, though they didn’t seem to mind the rise in sales (more on that later under Jay-Z).

Juicy

The Moët and Alizé keep me pissy, girls used to diss me
Now they write letters ’cause they miss me


Birthdays was the worst days 
Now we sip champagne when we thirst-ay 
Uh, damn right I like the life I live 
'Cause I went from negative to positive 
And it's all...

All About the Benjamins (Puff Daddy featuring Biggie Smalls)

I been had skills, Cristal spills
Hide bills in Brazil, about a mill’ the ice grill

Dom Perignon (Little Shawn featuring Notorious B.I.G.)

Get her pissy drunk off of Dom Pérignon
So I can put hickies on her chest like Little Shawn

Jay-Z Songs that Mention Wine

It’s well known in the wine industry that Jay-Z has an excellent palate and enjoys some of the best wines of the world. He started out mostly signing about Cristal and Hennesey but his palate has evolved to like the finer wines of life. He’s also part owner of Armand de Brignac Champagne; which he purchased after being disrespected by Cristal. In On to the Next One he address the controversy directly with the lyrics:

“I used to drink Cristal, them muh’fuckers racist
So I switched gold bottles on to that Spade shit”

He mentions his Champagne nicknamed Ace of Spades in Run This Town and N***** in Paris. Here are just a few more of the times Jay-Z mentions wine in his songs.

Show Me What You Got

Give the drummer some
Shit I already gave the summer some
It’s the winter’s turn
Hovie Hov is the coldest
I’m just getting better with time
I’m like Opus One
Young, no two alike like a snowflake
Okay, Show me what you got baby

Tom Ford

Paris where we been, pard’ my Parisian
It’s Hov time in no time, it’s fuck all y’all season
Piss Bordeaux and Burgundies, flush out a Riesling
When Hov’s out, them hoes out, y’all put y’all weaves in
Clap for a nigga with his rapping ass
Blow a stack for your niggas with your trapping ass
Spent all my euros on tuxes and weird clothes
I party with weirdoes, yeah Hov, yeah Hov

Good Wine by Felly (Produced by IAMNOBODI)

This is that song about wine you start singing after a few glasses with your friends. The beat is sick. I first heard this wine song in an Instagram reel and it worked perfectly.

“Never used to fuck with the red
Til’ I took a couple good bottles to the head
And now I’m bout that good wine, and good wine
Leaning of that good wine, good wine

Riesling and Rolling Papers by Fabolous

“And I’m not just being funny, I know no other way
Let’s just finish up this Riesling and roll another J”

Songs with Bordeaux Wine Lyrics

Bordeaux is one of the most famous wine regions in the world so it makes sense that there’s quite a few wine songs that mention the area. Bordeaux is known for red wines from the grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.

Bordeaux in my Pirough by Chuck Berry

A pirough or pirogue is a small boat that apparently Chuck Berry is sippin’ on some Bordeaux in. He really sets the scene here. I can see this wine song being played on a summer night on the patio.

“So long, Jean, got a little show, thanks for the Bordeaux
I got to go, push my pirough way down the bayou
They got a band up on the stand and a beautiful light show
Au revoir, Jean, dig the show from up on the plateau
In my pirough, with my Bordeaux, out on the bayou
Creeping along, singing a song, c’est, c’est bon, bon
Playing the music on my acoustic Spanish guitaro
Having a duet with my coquette out on the bayou
It’s growing night, we’ve got no lights out on the bayou
Beautiful trip, think we’ll sip some of my Bordeaux
Two more miles going wild to play my acoustic
See them stand to clap their hands to hear my music
One more mile, we rested awhile and sipped on some Bordeaux
While we’s grooving, a fog was moving in on the bayou
On my knee, just couldn’t see the front of my pirough
We didn’t mind, we just reclined and sipped some more Bordeaux
Ay-ay, Jean, I missed the show up on the plateau
Si vous plait, push my pirough back up the bayou
No see the band, no see the stand, no see the light show
Ahh, Jean, we had a show out on the bayou”

The Devil is a Lie by Rick Ross featuring Jay-Z

"Sippin Bordeaux out in Bordeaux
Hazard lights flashing on the four-door"

Bordeaux by The Durutti Column

This song about Bordeaux is very chill and would be a great pick wine playlist. Now, they don’t specifically mention Bordeaux wine but like, no one is sending love from Bordeaux and not also drinking wine.

“In France you are sleeping
I wish I could see you
It’s always this way
Love sent from Bordeaux
Love sent from Bordeaux”

Souvenir by Selena Gomez

For the record, not that I knew this, but Selena Gomez was born in 1992 so it wasn't a birthyear wine. 

"Sunset Tower lobby, waiting there for me
In the elevator, fumble for your key
Kissed in every corner, Presidential Suite
Opened up Bordeaux from 1993"

Songs about Beaujolais Wine

You gotta respect any song about Beaujolais. I was pretty surprised to find so many songs about Beaujolais out there. I mean, I get it, Bojo is pretty awesome stuff.

Beaujolais by Calabasas

“Beaujolais, s’il vous plaît
Sip that shit ’til I’m too faded
I’m in L.A. with it
Bring your girl, ménage à trois
Break the law
My shit like a lollipop, break your jaw”

Beaujolais by The Alan Parson Band

Beaujolais goes straight to my head
Beaujolais puts me to shame
And I don’t know why I’m in this place or how I came
Beaujolais and I go crazy
Beaujolais, I can’t explain
But it helps me to forget the past and ease the pain

Beaujolais by Roy Orbison

Ma la petit ca de bonee 
Life could be sweet, sweet Beaujolais 
Beautiful dream on a beautiful day 
Are you what you seem, sweet Beaujolais 

Oh girl, my heart is slipping away 
Oh girl, I love Beaujolais 

Tres bon chamlee, ca sont verne 
Ma fleur de lis, je t'aime Beaujolais 

Oh girl, my heart is slipping away 
Oh girl, I love Beaujolais 
I love Beaujolais 
I love Beaujolais 
I love Beaujolais

Songs with Wine in the Lyrics

Now, these aren’t necessary songs about wine exclusively but mention wine in their lyrics. I’m sure there’s a thousand more so let me know in the comments which ones I should add.

I Drink Wine by Adele

How can one become so bounded by choices that somebody else makes?
How come we both become a version of a person we don’t even like?
We’re in love with the world but the world just wants to bring us down
By puttin’ ideals in our heads to corrupt our hearts somehow
When I was a child every single thing could blow my mind
Soaking it all up for fun but now I only soak up wine
They say to play hard, you work hard, find balance in the sacrifice
And yet I don’t know anybody who’s truly satisfied

Red Wine, Mistakes, Mythology by Jack Johnson

Red wine, mistakes, apologies
And it’s all just red wine, headaches, mythology
Red wine, mistakes, apologies
And it’s all just red wine, headaches, mythology

Hotel California by The Eagles

Now we all know this song. It has wine lyrics and pink Champagne lyrics so I had to include in.

So I called up the Captain,
“Please bring me my wine”
He said, “We haven’t had that spirit here since nineteen sixty nine”


Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device”

Poison and Wine by The Civil Wars

“You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine”

Don’t Know Why by Norah Jones

“My heart is drenched in wine…”

Joy to the World by Three Dog Night

“Jeremiah was a bullfrog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him a-drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

Shots & Wine by Sean Paul

I take the shot and wine, wine, wine (I wine, wine) 
Hennessy shot and wine, wine, wine (I wine, wine) 
No need to rush, take time, time, time (Take time, time) 
I take a shot and wine, wine I take a shot and wine, wine 
Bidi bang bang bang

Wine Lyrics: Chardonnay

Marvin and Chardonnay by Big Sean and Kanye West

Early in the mornin' (mornin')
When she's all alone (when she's all alone)
I'm a take my time
Do it how we want it (do it how we want)
Just to set the mood girl I bought some Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay
So just let the song play
The long way
The strong way
It's our day
It's our way
This was all inspired by a little Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay

Ironic by Alanis Morisette

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic, don't you think?

Juice by Lizzo

If I'm shinin', everybody gonna shine (yeah, I'm goals) 
I was born like this, don't even gotta try (now you know) 
I'm like Chardonnay, get better over time (so you know) 
Heard you say I'm not the baddest, bitch, you lied

Wine Lyrics: Moscato

Basically Every Nicki Minaj Song

So, pretty much every Nicki Minaj song or song that she’s featured on has Moscato lyrics since she owns her own Moscato brand called Myx. Here’s just a few.

The Night Is Still Young
Yo, ayo tonight is the night that I'ma get twisted
Myx Moscato and vodka, I'ma mix it
Roll that spaceship, we about to get lifted
Live in the present, that gift is for the gifted
I'm Out with Ciara
"F-f-f-f*ck these petty n****s" is a bitch motto
If I say it on wax, every bitch follow
If I'm sippin' in the club, Myx Moscato
I got a big fat ass, big dicks follow
Bang Bang with Jesse J and Ariana Grande
"It's Myx Moscato
It's frizz in a bottle
It's Nicki full throttle, it's oh, oh"

Moscato by Roscoe Dash

Come On In
Close the door
Let's get it in
We'll go tomorrow
It's me, you & this Moscato ohoh-ohoh-ohoh-ohhhhh
Girl, you know that you in trouble ohoh-ohoh-ohoh-ohhhhh
It's me, you & this Moscato ohoh-ohoh-ohoh-ohhhhh

Moscato by Ab-Soul

You got—you got some more moscato?
Yeah, she’s a mean girl, I’m a nice guy
We all know opposite attract, like a rail road, and I like
You to do anything you please when you’re with me, momma
Let’s head home, crack a bottle of the Sutter Homes
And hit some trees, why not?

Wine Lyrics: Champagne

I’m sure we could all name 100 songs about Champagne or that mention Cristal or Moet off the top of our heads but these are a few of the best.

Champagne Supernova by Oasis

I will live to be 100 years old and still not know what a Champagne Supernova is.

Champagne Problems by Katy Perry

Did Katy Perry and Taylor Swift both come out with songs called Champagne Problems within months of each other? Yes, yes they did. I mean to be fair, they both have Champagne Problems but definitely not in the way they do. My problem is I can never get enough Champagne.

Champagne Problems by Taylor Swift

For the record, I would absolutely applaud if a friend brought over Dom.

“Dom Pérignon, you brought it
No crowd of friends applauded
Your hometown skeptics called it
Champagne problems”

Spray the Champagne by Migos

"Young ni**as got the crown
Young ni**as got the crown
OG's they respect us
Young ni**as got the crown
Spray the Champagne (Spray the Champagne)
Spray the Champagne (Spray the Champagne)
Spray the Champagne (Spray the Champagne)
Spray the Champagne"

Champagne Rose by Madonna featuring Cardi B

You gotta give Madge credit for pronouncing Champagne correctly.

No Sex in the Champagne Room by Chris Rock

One of the funniest songs about Champagne ever.

Livin’ La Vida Loca by Ricky Martin

“She never drinks the water and
Makes you order French champagne
Once you’ve had a taste of her
You’ll never be the same
Yeah, she’ll make you go insane
Come on!”

Cherry Wine Songs

Cherry Wine by Hozier

"The way she shows me I'm hers and she is mine
Open hand or closed fist would be fine
Blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine."

Sweet Cherry Wine by Tommy James and the Shondells

"No we ain't gonna fight
Only God has the right
To decide who's to live and die
He gave us sweet cherry wine
so very fine
Drink it right down, pass it all around
So stimulating, so intoxicating
Sweet cherry wine
To open your mind
And everybody's gonna feel so fine
Drinking sweet cherry wine
Yes they will"

Songs About Cheap Wine

Cheap wine songs can get us through some rough nights, that is for sure.

Cheap Wine by The Vamps

"I drank too much cheap wine 
Gonna spill this heart of mine 
Spill this heart of mine 
Baby I drank too much cheap wine 
Gonna say what's on my mind 
Say what's on my mind 
'Cause I want you to know that I'm drinking about you"

Cheap Wine and Cigarettes by Darkbuster

“I don’t know where I’m going and I know not where I’ve been
But my best friend is a bottle, A bottles my best friend
It may take most of my money, It may disapear
But I’ll always have a few bucks for a 6 pack of cold beer

And Some Cheap Wine and Cigarettes
Helps Me To Forget The Way We Went Apart
And My Broken Heart
Cheap Wine and Cigarettes
Helps Me To Forget The Way We Went Apart
And My Broken Heart”

Shining On by Big D and the Kids Table

As a Boston girl who used to get cheap wine from Blanchard’s I had to include this song with wine lyrics.

"I grab my bag and I walk on. Comm. Ave., 
I hit up Blanchard's
They sell cheap wine, I got six bucks.
Bag rips, wine smash.
Drink it up avoid the glass!"

Please leave a comment with your favorite song about wine or favorite wine lyric and I’ll add it to the list.
