In preparation for Sunday night's Oscars broadcast, bottlenotes.com came up with a clever "movie and wine" pairing article that I saw on epicurious.com.
For example, they suggest Zardetto Prosecco NV be paired with the movie Silver Linings Playbook.
"This movie is sparkling, fun, and cause to celebrate. It’s a refreshing story, so we’ve paired it with a refreshing, fun, dry sparkling wine with hints of peach and pear, perfect for a family get together, Sunday football, or a dance contest-- or (SpoilerAlert!) all three at once."
I thought their suggestion of Duck Shack Chardonnay 2011 for Lincoln was clever, and being a Chardonnay lover, I might just follow their lead if I can find a bottle.
"The duck shack is an old American name for the hut where friends and families gathered before starting out on a duck hunt. We thought a little history in the name of a wine should pair well with a little history. This complex yet crisp chardonnay is light, and not oaky. Serve it with chicken, salmon, and endive salad, and those gold statues will take a bow out of joy."
