Paul Giamatti is not drinking Merlot! (Although, he does, at the end of Sideways in the form of a 1961 Bordeaux.) Chianti got quite a boost from Silence of the Lambs (talk about a food and wine pairing). There’s Audrey Hepburn popping a bottle of bubbly before breakfast and Tyrion Lannister chugging goblets of Dornish red, which is like…Rioja maybe? From Cougar Town to Downton Abbey to Hallmark Christmas movies to every show that features parents after their kids go to bed, come taste some wines we love inspired by characters we love (or hate)!
