You like wine. You like movies. You like talking about both. This series is for you!
Every month this summer (June, July & August), you'll be assigned a wine-related film to watch on your own time. Alongside each film, you'll receive TWO bottles of wine that connect to the film's themes. On the last Thursday of each month, we'll gather live on Zoom to discuss the film, the wine-themes in the film, and the wines we sampled!
As a bonus, you'll also receive snack recipes to pair with the wines and the films!
So yes... it's part movie club, part book club, part wine club... all wrapped up into a fun summer activity!
I've selected an assortment of wine-related movies including an award-winning movie that had economic ramifications for the wine industry, an inspiring classic, and a modern comedy from Tina Fey.
Here's the line-up...
June - Sideways
Paired with Casa Nueva Pinot Noir & Romanet Merlot
Live Discussion: Thursday, June 30 at 7pm CDT
(streaming on Hulu & Spectrum On Demand or rent from Amazon Prime or Apple)
July - The Secret of Santa Vittoria
Paired with Vallagarina Rosé and Governo allo'uso Toscano Chianti
Live Discussion: Thursday, July 28 at 7pm CDT
(streaming on Amazon Prime or Paramount+ or rent from Amazon Prime)
August - Wine Country
Paired with Duca d'Amalfi and Pieroth Gold Flake
Live Discussion: Thursday, August 25 at 7pm CDT
(streaming on Netflix)
My hope is that most folks (or their friends) have some or all of these streaming services, or it should be easy to rent or sign-up for a free trial.
As for the wines I selected, it's a bit of a mix including three dry reds, a semi-sweet rosé, an off-dry white, and a sparkling white. With the suggested food pairings, these wines should work with everyone's palates! As always, I encourage you to be adventurous and try it all!
You can enjoy the wine alongside the movie or save one or both bottles to sample together at the end of the month when we discuss it all!
Plus one more bonus... I'll be creating a special membership area where everyone signed up can join together to discuss the movies in a private forum!
I hope you'll consider joining for this fun summer event! Feel free to invite your fellow wine and movie lovers to join as well! We can ship to many states, so this is a fun way to share an experience with friends or family across the country!
And this is only $89 delivered! That's over $180 in wine plus three live discussions and bonus recipe pairings!
