Top 5 Christmas film and wine pairings


There’s no time like Christmas time. The twinkling of tree lights, the incredible aromas wafting from the kitchen, the lovely hubbub as family and friends gather, and, of course, the happy clink of glasses.
To make the most of the festive season, discover our top Christmas film and wine pairings!

1. ELF & Sparkling wine

It’s a Will Ferrell movie so it’s hilarious. This cult Christmas movie deserves something bubbly and fun, just because it is! Our Corney & Barrow Sparkling Blanc de Blancs is the perfect match.

2.  A Christmas Carol & Sloe Gin

Like most Victorians, Dickens loved Gin, so we definitely recommend Corney & Barrow Sloe Gin. It’s really punchy but not overwhelming, pleasantly medicinal.

(And if you’re wondering, it goes down awfully well as a #NovelPairing too)

3.  Love Actually & Chardonnay

Love Actually is sweet, funny and romantic…just like Chardonnay! It used to be a bold new world Chardonnay, but nowadays it has to be burgundy – this year it will be a touch of Olivier Leflaive!

4.  The Grinch & Riesling

A dry Riesling is one of the most versatile wines out there. Acidic, crisp and complex, it reminds us of the Grinch. This is why we love him so much!


5.  It’s a Wonderful Life & Tawny Port

Its a wonderful life

Complex, heart-warming and guaranteed to give you all the feels. Settle down by the fire on Christmas Eve with this classic and a glass of our 20 year old Tawny Port.
