Wines to Make Your Oscar Favorite A Winner

And the Academy Award Goes to...


The Oscars are here this week and instead of sitting idly by, why not get out there and support your favorite flick by opening the appropriate bottle of wine?

You think that’s a challenge? P’shaw! It’s actually really easy if you think about it for a few minutes.

There are tons of appropriate wines out there, and I think the movie with the most appropriate wines wins!

So, what are you thinking? Doesn’t matter, we’ve got a wine for you!

Black Swan

My guess would be that drinking some Black Swan wines -- yes, it’s a real brand, from Australia -- would be the best way to show your support for this flick. Well, that and some CRAZY black eye liner.

The Fighter

Well, without a specific wine called The Fighter what are you gonna do? How about going after The Boxer? Well, at least until there’s a Tap Out wine! The Boxer Bill Calabria Oak Aged Durif Bin 11 is the perfect wine to cheer on The Fighter: a little rough around the edges, in your face, and in the end a winner!

Inception

Yes, you’re gonna have to get used to it. There is an Inception wine. Perception is a reality as well, so you can float around in your own hallucinatory dream world and have the right wine to drink.

Toy Story 3

You might have thought that finding a wine to match with a children’s animated film might be a challenge, but like with everything, Pixar makes it easy! Pixar’s John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer at Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, an Oscar winner in his own right, also creates at the Lasseter Family Winery. Though here what you get tends to resemble Rhône blends, St. Emilion blends, and the like. One of each please!

True Grit

Man, this is just freaking easy. Yes, there is in fact a wine called True Grit. What the hell is going on? Parducci’s classic True Grit Petite Sirah is, unlike the movie, packed full of fruit and spice. It’s a bit rough around the edges and might actually be a great accompaniment to pickled Rooster!

  • You should have had Alma Rosa Pinot Noir as that is what they drank throughout the movie...

    Word has it that Annette Bening loves the wine, and insisted it be used...

  • And don't forget a wine for the entire oscar's night: OSCAR'S, a portuguese red wine from the Douro Valley, produced by Oscar Quevedo Winery. You can have a look of OSCAR'S @ their own website (http://quevedoportwine.com/wines/os...) or @ Adegga (http://pt.adegga.com/wine/AVIN62395...). Cheers!!

    What did the grape say when the elephant sat on it?
    Nothing, he just let out a little whine.
