Popcorn may not be the first food pairing that comes to mind when drinking wine, but Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson thinks it's time to change that.

"Popcorn is great with wine," said Robinson, who discovered the pairing when she was first starting out at New York's International Wine Center.

"I went into the kitchen to microwave some popcorn, and there was a free bottle of Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay. It was my first 'Aha!' wine pairing moment." Here are some of Robinson's favorite wine-and-popcorn flavor combinations.

Have you ever tried eating popcorn alongside a glass of vino?
