Silver Linings Playbook

Vintner’s Reserve Pinot Noir

This endearing film is about second chances and the beauty of finding the silver lining, even when you have to look hard to find it. That triumph through struggle is perfectly in line with that most haunting of grapes, Pinot Noir.  A notoriously challenging wine to make, but when you get it right, Pinot Noir reveals stunning complexity and depth.


Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

This incredible adaption of President Lincoln during the last months of his life evokes an unforgettable perspective of one the most lauded men in American history. So we had to go with the world’s most renowned red wine grape, a timeless classic that pairs with the spirit of Lincoln.


Vintners Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Argo is a smart, intense thriller with great attention to detail and character development. It’s a sit-on-the-edge-of-your seat ride that requires a refreshing wine you can sip through the high-anxiety tension.

 Les Misérables  

Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay.

Like the character Fantine in Les Misérables, our Founder, Jess Jackson, also “Dreamed a Dream” with his bold vision to craft a world-class Chardonnay more than 30 years ago. Well, dreams do come true.  Jess’s unwavering commitment to quality launched one of America’s favorite wines.

Life of Pi

Vintner’s Reserve Syrah

This film captures the imagination with its vast ocean journey and Bengal tiger.  For this exotic and adventurous movie, you need a wine that has an equally striking, alluring character. Our Syrah’s hint of spice plays nicely here.
