How to Overcome the Sunday Night Blues

The best cure for the Sunday night blues is a glass of wine. Luckily I’ve had five so I don’t know what day it is anymore!

The weekend passed by so quickly and it feels as if Friday was just five minutes ago. Winosaur helps you to beat the Sunday night blues with some great movies highlighting some classic wine brands, grape varieties or wine styles. Pyjamas on, pull off the cork and lean back! And don’t be melancholic, the next week could be the luckiest of your life!


Silence of the Lambs

A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

In this scene, Hannibal Lecter tries to scare off Jodie Foster, in the role of a FBI trainee. Well, you probably don’t know that this famous moment should mention the Amarone wine rather than Chianti. They finally changed the script because of a lack of knowledge on Aramone.

Really scary, right?


God father

Hard to make a movie about the Italian mafia without wine. The only thing that is more red than the wine in this movie is the blood shed…


The Great Gatsby with Moët&Chandon

 


James Bond

A long and beautiful love story between James Bond and wine or Champagne, impossible to select only one movie from the saga.

Dr No (1962)

“That’s a Dom Perignon ’55,” says Dr. No. “It would be a pity to break it.”
Bond shrugs, puts the bottle down, and says, “I prefer the ’53 myself.”

Goldfinger (1964)

“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!”

Die Another Day (2002)

The first thing James Bond asks after a 14-months stay in a Korean prison is a bottle of Champagne Bollinger 1961.

Goldeneye (1995)

James Bond takes a bottle of Bollinger Grand Year 1988 with two flutes of the steering wheel of his Aston Martin.

Casino Royale (2006)

A bottle of Château Angelus can be seen in the train scene.
