Wine and Movie Night: The Perfect Pairing
It may be a Monday but there’s no stopping you from a wine and movie night! Think about it: wine and movies are the perfect combination for a relaxing evening to push away the Monday blues. You might have always loved wine with your movie nights but have you ever thought about pairing your wine with the movie you're watching? We’ve talked about pairing wine with food from meals to chocolates, but did you know that different movies also complement different types of wine? Enhance your movie-watching experience with the right type of wine!
Romantic comedies would go so well with sparkling wines such as Bottega Gold or Bottega Prosecco. The bubbles and lightness of these wines can add a festive and celebratory feel to the movie. You’ll truly feel the kilig to the bones as you sip on sparkling wine with a light heart. The Antigal Uno Rosé is another great option for romantic comedies, with its fruity and vanilla notes complementing the light-hearted and romantic mood of the movie.
Drama and Thrillers
If you’re in the mood for drama or thriller movies, a bold red wine such as a Antigal Uno Cabernet Sauvignon or a Handpicked Collection Shiraz would be perfect. The rich and complex flavors of these wines can enhance the intense emotions and tension of the movie. A full-bodied red wine like Maycas San Julian Pinot Noir or Montrouge Merlot would also be a great option, with their smooth and silky finish complementing the intensity of the movie.
A crisp white wine such as Montrouge Sauvignon Blanc or a Bottega Pinot Grigio would be the perfect pair for action movies. The acidity and minerality of these wines can help refresh the palate and provide a perfect contrast to the action-packed scenes of the movie. A Maycas Reserva Especial Chardonnay is also a good option with its silky texture and layers complementing the state-of-the-art special effects and stunt-work.
Documentaries and Indie Films
For documentaries or independent films, a versatile wine like Handpicked Selection Mornington Pinot Noir or Antigal Uno Malbec would be a great choice. These wines have a good balance of acidity, tannins, and fruit, which makes them a perfect match for the thought-provoking and reflective nature of these movies. Sip on these wines as you process your introspections throughout the night.
When it comes to pairing wine with movie night, it is important to keep in mind that the most important thing is to enjoy the pairing that suits your taste. Experimentation is key, and you might be surprised by how different wines can change the experience of watching a movie. So, next time you're having a movie night, don't be afraid to try something new and pair your favorite wine with your favorite movie to take your experience to the next level.
