It's movie night and you are looking for the perfect movie to enjoy with some popcorn and a good glass wine.. Here is my list on movies any wine lover would enjoy!
1. A walk in the Clouds.
Is the story of a young married soldier, returning home after the war. He starts his day job, selling chocolates on the road, where he meets a distraught pregnant woman whose boyfriend has abandoned her. He decides to help her by, posing as her husband , so that she can face her Old World domineering father. It's a very romantic wine movie and you might want to buy your own vineyard after watching it!
2. Bottle Shock
Is a comedy-drama film based on the 1976 wine competition termed the "Judgement of Paris", when Californian wine defeated the French wine in a blind tasting hosted in Paris. Steven Spurrier (a British sommelier) owns a little wine shop in Paris and after having a conversation with his shop neighbor, he decides to travel to California. He travels to the not-yet-famous Napa Valley in search of contestants for his Judgement of Paris blind tasting. He meets Jim Barret, foundering vintner of Chateau Montelena. There's strain in Jim's relations with his hippie son Bo and his foreman Gustavo, who secretly making his own wine. Then there is Sam, the recently graduated Intern and free spirit, mutually attracted to both Gustavo and Bo. Based on a true-life story, Bottle shock , with lots of little twist and turns, is the perfect for movie night. I really recommend watching this movie before your next trip the Napa Valley!
3. A Good Year
A British investment broker, Max Skinner inherits his uncle's chateau and vineyard in Provence, where he spent much of his childhood. He travels to France in the hope to renovate the Estate and sell it, but discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he comes to realize that life is meant to be savored. This movie is the perfect date-night movie, that will pair perfectly with a bottle of French wine!
Two men (Miles Raymond and Jack Cole) both in their forties embark on a week-long road trip to Santa Barbera County, wine country. Miles and Jack have little in common, but theur friendship endure, because they've been friends since college. The reason for the road trip is Jack's Bachelor party. Miles wants to have a relaxed week away with wine tasting, eating good food and playing golf. Jack has the opposite idea, he is is on the prowl and wants one last sexual fling before settling into domestic married life. Sounds like a recipe for disaster? Or the recipe for a award winning black comedy drama.
