When it comes the movies, we rarely think of wine, unless we’re drinking it ourselves of course. But here are 10 iconic quotes about wine from the silver screen.
“My dear girl, there are some things that just aren’t done, such as drinking Dom Perignon ‘53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!”
James Bond, Goldfinger (1964)
Kermit: “Waiter, the wine please.”
Miss Piggy: “You mad, impetuous thing, it’s Champagne!”
Snooty sommelier (Steve Martin): “Not exactly. Sparkling Moscatel, one of the finest wines from Idaho!”
The Muppet Movie (1979)
Stick your nose in it. Don’t be shy, really get your nose in there. A little citrus, maybe some strawberry… passion fruit… and there’s the faintest soupcon of like… asparagus… and just a… a flutter of a nutty Edam cheese.
“Wine is sunlight, held together by water.” The poetic wisdom of the Italian physicist, philosopher, and stargazer, Galileo Galilei. It all begins with the soil, the vine, the grape. The smell of the vineyard —like inhaling birth. It awakens some ancestral, some primordial… anyway, some deeply imprinted, and probably subconscious place in my soul.
Bottle Shock (2008)
"Wine is a grand thing. It makes you forget all the bad you do."
A Farewell to Arms (1957)
"I like how wine continues to evolve. Like, if I opened a bottle today, it would taste different than if I'd opened it on any other day. Because a bottle of wine is actually alive; it's constantly evolving and gaining complexity."
"It's a bold wine with a hint of sophistication and lacking in pretense. Actually, I was just talking about myself."
French Kiss (1995)
"Years, lovers, and glasses of wine. These are things that should never be counted."
The Age of Adeline (2015)
Marty: Twinkies and wine? Oh that's real class Jan.
Jan: It says right here it is a dessert wine.
Rizzo:Hey! Sandy didn't get any wine.
“Red wine with fish. Well, that should have told me something.”
James Bond, From Russia With Love (1963)
