“The battle of wits has begun” – Princess Bride Wine!

by Scott Caldwell

If there is one thing I love, it’s a good gla….fine, BOTTLE, of wine. I also enjoy movies, movies about wine, and whining about movies. No, this is not my dating profile. Stay with me now. This article has a point, and that is that one of the greatest films to feature wine in it’s storyline is about to have a wonderful tribute paid to it, including it’s own cleverly named wine, “The Bottle of Wits”. Yes, as the title explains, the great scene in The Princess Bride involving the switching of poisoned goblets between Westley and Vizzini is now coming soon thanks to the ……Alamo Drafthouse? Keep reading for the details.

Visited by movie lovers from around the world, the Alamo Drafthouse is known for its big events, and now they are going one step further by adding a great addition such as the nostalgic and loved movie, The Princess Bride. “THE PRINCESS BRIDE QUOTE-ALONG & FEAST” as it is so aptly named by being one of the most recognized films by it’s quotes alone, will feature a full womantic……sorry, romantic menu, along with bottles of As You Wish White and Inconceivable Red. This event will take place on Valentine’s Day (February 14th if you weren’t aware) in various Drafthouse locations as well as a couple days after in others. Visit PrincessBrideWine for more details.

Other notable wines to look for:

Dan Aykroyd
Emilio Estevez
Francis Ford Coppola
Antonio Banderas
Raymond Burr
Sam Neill
