My Favourite Movies with Wine in Them

One of my favourite actors from long before she was on Grey's Anatomy, is Sandra Oh. A fantastic Canadian actor that I first saw in the play "Inquest" at the Factory Theatre in Toronto. From that point on I was a big fan. She has gone on to a lot of great things including and if you are a wine drinker and a bit of a movie fan you have probably seen it.


No doubt a great movie, including many other great actors, but more importantly a focus on wine.

I want to give you my top 5 movies or scenes that have wine in them that I love to see over and over again.
The Princess Bride.
Probably a movie that you have all seen and love. I know my kids do.


Silence of the Lambs
An amazing thriller scene.

Roman Holiday
The first time drunk for the Princess and Joe Bradley has a glass of wine.

Band of Brothers - Day of Days - Day of Firsts.
This is actually an HBO Mini-series
 The night of D-Day June 6, 1944.

One of the best movies of all time and flush with Champagne

  1. A great one with lots of wine. However, not one that I keep going back to. Not quite sure why that one didn't really click with me. Non-the-less an amazing movie.

  2. What about Steve Martin's cameo in the original Muppet Movie as the awful waiter who opens Kermit and Miss Piggy's bottle of "sparkling Muscatel from Idaho" with a beer opener, then asks Kermit if he'd like to smell the bottle cap? Not quite what you had in mind? Did you expect anything less from me? :)
