Christmas is synonymous with sharing. There is nothing more beautiful than to cozy up to a Christmas film with friends and loved ones, and a glass of wine in hand. Here are five Christmas that are worth sharing a glass of wine over:
1. Home Alone
It has become on all time classic Christmas movie, with Kevin McCallister, played by a young Macaulay Culkin, taking us on a whirlwind ride of cat and mouse with both thieves and far away parents. This wine is best enjoyed with a Dogajolo Toscano Rosato, a young and innovative wine that is easy to drink and enjoy among friends.
2. Nightmare Before Christmas
Born from the brilliant imagination of Tim Burton, Nightmare Before Christmas is a stop-motion adventure that takes us to a whole other world. This film is very much like a Farnito Brut - limited in quantity, and unique in quality.
3. Trading Places
Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd switch identity in the famous John Landis comedy Trading Places, a perfect film for the holiday season. This cult film goes best with a Rosso di Montalcino wine which never goes out of fashion, just like this film.
4. The Grinch
It’s impossible to hate Christmas, or is it? Ron Howard’s the Grinch, starring Jim Carrey is a comedy perfect for the whole family and never seems to tire. Just like a Chardonnay!
5. It’s a Wonderful Life
Of all the Christmas films around, an honorable mention goes to It's a Wonderful Life, a timeless classic by Frank Capra. This Christmas classic is perfect with a smooth and structured classic such as a Chianti Classico.
