Warm-up this season with a great film paired with a fabulous Ontario wine. From rollicking comedies to fascinating documentaries, movies are a great way to take the chill out of winter and transport you back to those warm summer days in the vineyard. We’ve chosen a few of our top film picks, partnered with some great Ontario wines from Stocked Cellars’ specially curated collection. Buy wine online at Stocked Cellars, find one (or all) of these great flicks, then curl up and enjoy a wonderful night in this winter.
Bottle Shock, 2008: Based on the true story of the 1976 Judgement of Paris, a blind taste-test that pitted California wines against French wines. In both white and red categories, the California wines took top marks, raising eyebrows and the wrath of old-world wine purists. It is a great story made even better through the talents of Chris Pine, Bill Pullman, and the late Alan Rickman. With chardonnay taking the spotlight throughout the film, we suggest enjoying a glass of Ravine Vineyard 2018 chardonnay while you watch. Order this wine online and have it ready to enjoy for your next movie night.
Sour Grapes, 2016: If you love a great red and a riveting true-crime documentary, this pairing is for you. Through eyewitness accounts, the film tells the story of wine collector Rudy Kurniawan who was sentenced to 10 years in prison after selling fake bottles of Clos Saint-Denis produced by Domaine Ponsot in Burgundy, France. Watch this fascinating film with a glass of authentic King’s Court Estate Winery 2017 Pinot Noir. No need to wait for an auction: you can buy this wine online in Ontario at Stocked Cellars.
Sideways, 2004: This film, like a great wine, stands the test of time. With more than 120 award wins including an Oscar, it is a poignant and funny story with brilliant acting by Paul Giamatti, Thomas Hayden Church, Sandra Oh, and Virginia Madsen. Enjoy this road trip through sunny California wine country with a summery glass of Konzelmann Estate Winery 2018 Pinot Grigio.
