When Harry Met Sally, a Bold Red
This hilarious rom com is a fan-favorite and it’s no surprise why. From the witty banter of the love interests to the will-they-or-won’t-they storyline, you’ll need a bold wine to carry you through to the climactic ending. A sensual Zinfandel with notes of blackberry will have you channeling Sally’s fearless “performance” in Katz’s Deli. Try a plump Malbec for a taste of jammy goodness that pairs well with Harry’s dry humor.
Bridget Jones’s Diary, a Dry White
This hilarious Renée Zellweger throwback is full of heavy drama and tension between the characters. You’ll need plenty of wine watching relatable, yet embarrassing, Bridget Jones navigate her love life. In one of her diary entries, Bridget mentions pouring herself a giant glass of Chardonnay. Channel your inner British spinster with a glass of this full-bodied white wine and watch as the drama unfolds.
Pretty Woman, a Bubbly Champagne
A glass of bubbly is the perfect pairing for this whirlwind fairytale romance. Follow the epic love story of Edward and Vivian that will have you literally swooning. Celebrate this Cinderella-esque romance with fruit-infused champagne that helps bring out the flavor, just like Edward taught Vivian! Julia Roberts is truly the Queen of Romantic Comedies and Pretty Woman is one of her most iconic roles.
10 Things I Hate About You, a Sweet Rosé
Based off of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, this classic romantic comedy stars Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger. If Heat’s rendition of “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You” isn’t motivation enough for you to watch this movie, then maybe the wine will be. We’ve paired a sweet rosé like Pink Moscato with this adorably sweet love story. This bubbly dessert wine with hints of fruit will have you starry-eyed over handsome Heath Ledger and cheering with joy by the end of the movie.
