5 wine pairings with your favorite romantic comedies


One of the best things to do on a chilly fall night is curling up with a bottle of wine and watching romantic comedies! That's why I thought it would be a fun twist to pair delicious wine with classic movies as a way to enjoy your next movie night. So grab some delicious snacks and pick your favorite combination!

1. When Harry Met Sally // Cabernet Sauvignon

The complexity of Harry & Sally's relationship paired with witty humor, blossoming friendship, and relatable grownup truths, a Cabernet Sauvignon's juicy yet rich flavor will give you delicious twists and turns as you enjoy while watching this classic movie.

Wine Recommendation: 90+ Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza Argentina Lot 53.

2. The Proposal // Rose`

Faced with unexpected romance and Margaret Tate's dry, yet bold personality, The Proposal pairs beautifully with a crisp Rose.` Even this particular 90+ Cellars Rose` had grapes preserved by the mountain air, reflecting Alaska's fresh, clean, and romantic atmosphere.

Wine Recommendation: Lot 33 Rose`, Languedoc, France 2018

3. The Notebook // Chardonnay

As a heartfelt and timeless romantic drama, there's nothing better than a classic Chardonnay to pair with the endless and aging love between Noah and Allie, especially when it complements the crisp, rich yet juicy plot. Don't forget a cheeseboard to snack on and extra large wine glasses because The Notebook definitely pulls at those heartstrings. Actually, forget the glass, just the bottle will do (oh, and tissues, lots of tissues).

Wine Recommendation: Lot 152 Chardonnay, Mendocino, CA 2017

4. Bridesmaids // Sparkling Rose`

Bridesmaids is one of my all time favorite movies, my BFF and I are guilty of watching way, way too many times! The relatable life messes, best friend relationships, and endless humor make a perfect girls night with sparkly pink rose`. Also who doesn't love the fabulous cast?!

Wine Recommendation: 90+ Cellars Lot 49 Sparkling Rose`, Italy, NV

5. How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days // Lambrusco

Throwing back to the early 2000s, How to Lose A Guy In 10 Days pairs flirty, outrageous rom-com fun when Andie tries to prove she can dump a guy in 10 days while Ben needs to show his friends he can win a girl. The effervescence and plum flavors offer a versatile taste, and will pair nicely with this wildly adorable and fizzy comedy.

Wine Recommendation: Lot 172 Lambrusco, Grasparossa Di Castelvetro, Doc Italy
