Avengers Wines

Your 6 favorite characters and their wine counterparts


Starting early yesterday evening, comic fans across the nation began lining up at local movie theaters to ensure their entry to the biggest movie opening of the season: Joss Whedon's The Avengers.

Starring all of our favorite comic characters, the movie is set for a giant grand opening weekend. With star-packed cast and killer director Joss Whedon, this is one that movie fans will be talking about for a long time.

So what is the best way to celebrate this opening other than dressing up and attending yourself? Try translating your favorite characters into their wine alter-egos and guzzling in true Tony Stark style. Just don't go all Hulk on us, not everyone can pull off green.

Read on to see how The Avengers team translates in the bottle and just which are worth picking up.

Iron Man

There is no better wine to honor the strength of Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man than a bloody, iron-filled wine like Cool Climate Syrah. We recommend Cline Cellars Cool Climate Syrah.

Thor

The god of thunder is famous for wielding a giant, powerful hammer, so clearly he would transform into a wine from Blacksmith Cellars. With award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, Blacksmith's wines have plenty of strength. We recommend Blacksmith Cellars Late Harvest Syrah for its immense power.

The Incredible Hulk

Light and fresh though powerful and green. If we're not talking about the Hulk, we have to be talking about Vinho Verde from Portugal. Perk: this one's perfect for summer. Try the Quinta da Aveleda Fonte Vinho Verde in the bright green bottle.

Black Widow

Sneaky, dark and a skilled warrior, yet without the super powers of some of her teammates, Black Widow clearly translates into the delicious wines of Black Widow Winery in Penticton, British Columbia. We recommend their Merlot Cabernet blend.

Hawkeye

The yin to Black Widow's yang, Hawkeye similarly does not have the super powers of his peers - just an unreasonably high skill set in archery. Clearly his wine alter-ego comes from Archery Summit. Try their Premier Cuvee, it's sure to hit the spot!
