Organizing a special night for Valentine’s Day, or simply because you want to have a different night, can be very easy. Today we propose a very simple idea and very easy to prepare: a night of cinema and wine.
Tips for planning the perfect night
Choose the movie well
It is about enjoying in good company, so choose a film that those who are going to be part of the plan like it too. We propose some titles that include love stories, drama, comedy and documentaries about culture and the wine industry, and that provide insight into the importance of vineyards and wine production in culture and heritage:
- Sideways (2004) –Drama comedy directed by Alexander Payne and written by Jim Taylor and Payne. Film known for its portrayal of California wine and vineyard culture, as well as its exploration of human relationships and life in middle age. The film’s plot revolves around two friends, Miles and Jack, who decide to take a trip through the California countryside to celebrate Jack’s impending wedding.
- A good year (2006) – Romantic comedy directed by Ridley Scott and starring Russell Crowe. This film is known for its beautiful scenery and its exploration of values and life in the Provence region of France. The film’s plot revolves around a successful but cold and lonely London stockbroker who inherits a vineyard in the Provence region of France from his uncle, a famous winemaker.
- Bottle Shock (2008) – Comedy directed by Randall Miller. Film that stands out for its exploration of the world of wine and its taste, as well as for its portrait of rivalry and love for the creation of a good wine. The plot of the film revolves around the world of wine and the 1976 tasting contest known as the “Judgment of Paris”.
- Mondovino (2004) – French documentary film directed by Jonathan Nossiter. This film is known for its documentary style and its exploration of the complexity and richness of wine culture. It is also considered a critique of globalization and its impact on the economy and culture. The argument revolves around globalization and the impact of business in the world of wine.
Decorate the space for the occasion
Create a cozy and comfortable environment with dim lights and pillows so you can kick back and enjoy the movie.
Prepare the wine
Wine pairing suggestions
Prepare some snacks (or buy them if you don’t have time) to enjoy while you watch the movie. No need to complicate if you don’t have time. A plate with ham, pate, cheese and some bread to accompany it is enough to accompany these wines. If you like popcorn try seasoning it with olive oil, fresh rosemary and a little grated Parmesan. If you fancy something sweet, some strawberries with chocolate are always a hit.
Enjoy the moment
Turn off the phones and enjoy the movie and the wine.
Talk in a relaxed way
It seems that we would not have to mention this step, but in the hectic day to day sometimes we need a relaxed space to talk and enjoy a pleasant conversation, and a good wine.
To sum up, finding a moment to relax and enjoy the company is easier than it seems, sometimes, you just need an excuse.
