Wine At The Movies!
Join us for this special one-off masterclass celebrating the vinous stars of the silver screen! From Bond’s love of Bollinger, to Lecter’s unique pairings with Chianti, we’ll enjoy some of these classic unforgettable moments and learn a bit more about the wines behind them – all accompanied by the classic clips of course!
We’ll also look at some of the seminal films made about wine itself. You’ll learn the astonishing effect Miles’ hate of merlot reeked on the Californian wine market after the 2004 hit film ‘Sideways’ – the wine industry is only just recovering. The amazing story of one of the biggest frauds in history immortalised in the movie ‘Sour Grapes’ – could you spot the difference between a top notch wine and a bottle of plonk? We’ll put your blind tasting skills to the test and find out! And finally the background to Alan Rickman’s portrayal of Steven Spurrier in the cult hit ‘Bottle Shock’ – the amazing true story of one of the most famous wine tastings ever hosted, the ‘Judgement of Paris’, that turned the whole wine world upside down.
All these and others! 7 brilliant wines, 6 classic film clips, all accompanied by nibbles, tasting sheets and professional ISO glasses. This would make an ideal gift – just reply to the automated confirmation email you receive after booking and we can post you out a gift voucher.
