Your holiday parties are over, the cold weather is here, and you’re wondering what on earth you’re going to do with your Friday nights…
Well look no further, Wine Rack has got you covered! We suggest a cozy night in with a great movie, a delicious snack, and an even better wine pairing. Whether you’re watching a romance with your partner, a comedy with your pals or a chick flick with the ladies, we’ve got the perfect snack and wine combos that are sure to please any crowd!

Tortilla Chips & Guacamole dip NV LHD Sauvignon Blanc 750mL Bottle

1) Comedy, Sauvignon Blanc, and Guacamole

Keep the evening light and flavorful with this tremendous trio! We suggest a comedy movie that has an entertaining storyline but keeps the mood nice and light. Carry this theme into your wine of choice by serving a light white wine with pronounced flavour such as a Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy the refreshing grassy, citrus and green fruit flavours as you laugh along with the movie. Balance out your wine with corn chips & home-made guacamole (or store-bought.. we won’t tell!). The creamy texture of the guacamole will allow the acidity of the wine to shine through for a refreshing and delicious combo. Get ready to “guac” and roll!

Comedy Movie: School of Rock
Wine: Longhand Sauvignon Blanc 750mL, $14.95

Selection of Premium Cheese NV INN Vidal Icewine 375ml bottle

2) Romance, Icewine, Selection of Cheese 

It’s date night and you want to make the evening extra special. First, you set the mood with an intense romance movie that’s bound to get you both feeling extra emotional. The best way to match a movie like this is to serve an equally intense and flavourful wine. Treat your lucky someone to a glass of icewine to show them how extra sweet they are to you. Impress your date by pairing this sweet, fruity and acidic icewine with a selection of premium cheese. We recommend a platter including blue cheese, brie, goat cheese and salty parmesan. This sweet and savoury combo takes it to the next level and will make your date want to “brie” yours!

Twizzlers OP Cellar Select Rose 750ml bottle

3) Chick Flick, Rosé, Twizzlers

The ladies are looking for a low-key night in and you’ve offered to host. No need to worry, we’ve got a movie, wine and snack line-up that’s trendy and delicious! Start the evening off with a fan-favourite chick flick that all the ladies will love. We recommend an equally popular wine that is becoming a staple in modern womanhood. Yes way Rosé! We suggest you go local with a high quality VQA rosé wine that is fruit forward and refreshing. Pair the red fruit flavours of the wine with a mildly sweet and chewy favourite.. Twizzlers! The red fruit notes in the candy help highlight some of the cherry and strawberry flavours of the wine. This duo follows the rule of thumb; your snack should not be sweeter than your wine! So sit back, relax, and put your feet up! “Twiz” the season, right?

Jalapeno Poppers Cellar Selec Late Autumn Riesling 750ml Bottle

5) Thriller, Riesling, Jalapeno Poppers

A movie night in doesn’t have to be low key! Take it up a notch with this thrilling movie, wine and snack combo. Get the evening off to an exciting start with a thriller starring some well-known Hollywood names. You can’t pair a Thriller with a boring wine and snack combo, so it is important that you serve something that will energize you and your guests. We recommend deep-fried jalapeno poppers fresh out of the oven for a delicious combination of fat, salt, cream and spice. Keep the excitement alive with a wine that has a touch of sweetness to balance out the spice from the jalapeno poppers. Alcohol can enhance the intensity of spice, so we recommend a Riesling with a lower alcohol percentage to ensure the spice doesn’t overpower your snack. This movie night will definitely give your guests a “Riesling” to come back!

Thriller Movie: Ocean’s Eleven
Wine: Inniskillin Cellar Select Late Autumn Riesling 750mL, $13.95
Snack: Jalapeno poppers

White Chocolate NV ART Pinot- Noir 750m Bottle

6) Drama, Pinot Noir, White Chocolate

What’s a movie night without a little drama? Put on a classic drama film sure to get the emotions flowing! We recommend an Academy Award winner that incorporates a compelling storyline, talented actors, and maybe a few unfinished math problems on the chalkboard. Pair this timeless film with a classic snack that many movie watchers love, such as chocolate. However, we know that pairing wine and chocolate can be difficult due to their similarities, so we’ve come up with the perfect solution! We suggest you stick with white chocolate as it offers this delicious treat without the tannin and antioxidant effects of regular milk or dark chocolate. A perfect wine pairing with white chocolate is another classic, Pinot Noir. The white chocolate will bring out sweet flavours of red fruit found in the Pinot Noir. Prove to the chocolate and wine pairing disbelievers that the perfect trio does exist! Your guests will enjoy your drama film while having a “choco-lot” of fun!

Drama Movie: Good Will Hunting
