For centuries, people have enjoyed wine with their food. And since the creation of social media, people have shared photos and videos of their plates and glasses. However, a few folks are exceptionally good at enticing followers with their wining and dining experiences. Here are a few standout wine influencers with accounts dedicated to drool-worthy, thirst-quenching content. 

7 social media accounts to follow:

@wine_food_explorer

Known on Instagram as @wine_food_explorer, Robert Capria is eating and drinking through life in the best way. Lobster tails poached in olive oil with a shallot beurre blanc sauce? He’s eating the decadent dish alongside glasses of non-vintage Ruinart Champagne Blanc de Blanc at a fancy white-tablecloth restaurant somewhere in the world. What about a delicious plate of homemade bolognese? He’s wolfing it down with a bottle of Feudi di San Gregorio Serpico 2008 from Campania. There are plenty more photos and videos depicting similar fabulous eating scenarios on Capria’s Instagram, and all of his posts come with an informative description of what he’s eating and where. Capria’s definitely the person you’d want in charge of making the dinner reservation.

Need a dinner recipe tonight? Look no further than Fabrizio Villalpando’s TikTok, @theemoodyfoody. Villalpando mostly shares videos of the delectable dishes he makes, like curry pumpkin soup and the dreamiest breakfast sandwiches. However, he often drinks wine with his meals. He’s usually cooking with wine, too, like that one time he created the most beautiful, nearly purple, red wine sauce for his perfectly seared steak and mashed potatoes, or when he poured in a splash of white wine in his special osso buco veal shank dinner. Grab the nearest bottle and an apron, and get to scrolling for dinner inspiration.

@food.wine.repeat

With a name like @food.wine.repeat, it’s not hard to guess what this Instagram account is all about. Ran by artist Lisa Lytle, there’s a bevy of bottles to see and plenty of plates, too, along with the occasional sighting of Lytle’s adorable English bulldogs. Lytle’s Instagram is more like a personal blog. It’s mostly filled with glimpses of dishes and wines being enjoyed at any given moment, no context necessary. But it all looks very delicious and is just the kind of content that will motivate followers to get in the kitchen and make their own pizza to go with a bottle of Tusk Estates Cabernet Sauvignon

A post shared by Hai Tran (@sommsayhai)

Wine education meets down-home cooking on sommelier and Sommation contributor Hai Tran’s Instagram, @sommsayhai. Sure, there are plenty of bottle recommendations and tasting notes dotting Tran’s account. However, he takes his wine content to another level by sharing wine pairings of dishes he enjoys and makes at home. What’s even better? Tran isn’t posting the same old snoozy wine pairings. He’s sharing the flavorful and comforting dishes of his Vietnamese heritage, and he’s sopping it all up with wines from lesser-known regions. Bánh Xèo and Pošip by Croatian producer Rizman Slivno? Beef Pho and Tabor Winery Adama Barbera Rosé? This is the account to follow should Bánh Cuốn be on the menu and a bottle of good Greek wine is needed to pair with it.

Hello? Extra meaty meatballs are calling, and they’re tapping Lammidia wine in on three-way. Funky, fruity bottles and giant meatballs covered in mozzarella and swimming in some kind of mouthwatering goodness dubbed as Cherry Buttah Baby sauce aren’t the only things to check out on Toussaint Stackhouse’s Instagram account, @papi_petnat. There are plenty of natural wines and innovative, tasty dishes to be discovered. There are even directions on making whatever Stackhouse whips up, so followers don’t just have to drool in hunger looking at pictures. And every dish comes with a partnering bottle of wine with tasting notes.

@dfw_wine_dine

If the beautiful imagery on @dfw_wine_dine’s Instagram doesn’t influence followers to get in the kitchen, it will at least inspire them to head to their nearest wine shop and pick up a bottle. The posts flooding the account, belonging to a Dallas blogger only referred to as JC, are truly a feast for the eyes. Picture perfect glasses of Champagne Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose NV sit pretty next to recipe reels of miso butter sea bass. It’s all one big feast for the eyes.
