Pairing #Oscar Nominated Films With the Perfect Wine or Cocktail

The Martian Wine Pairing If you were impressed by Matt Damon’s botany skills in The Martian, you might be similarly impressed by this sustainable wine from eco-progressive winemaker Arnaldo Caprai.

Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso DOC (SRP: $23) is a beautiful blend of local Sangiovese (70%), Sagrantino (15%), and Merlot (15%),characterized by a bright ruby red color with an intense aroma of ripe fruit with a hint of vanilla.

Wine Pairing What better way to toast the countdown to the Oscars than with a flute of Charles Heidsieck NV Brut (SRP: $65), a rich and decadent Champagne that strikes a stark contrast to the cheap shots made by the Fashion Police at the expense of this year’s Oscar nominees.
