Tune in for our weekend movie & wine pairings! The marathon for the TCM Wine Club kicks off on Saturday, August 13th at 2:00 PM (ET)

 


 

First Movie: Saturday, August 13th at 2:00 PM (ET)

The Movie: The Four Feathers(1939)
The Wine: Saracosa 2014

A disgraced officer risks his life to help his childhood friends in battle. Color (Technicolor), 130 mins.

Tasting Notes: The film’s boldness complements the innovative spirit of Super Tuscan blends like this tantalizing Saracosa. Enjoy a glass with this visual stunner, the definitive film version of the 1902 novel by A.E.W. Mason.

 


 

Second Movie: Saturday, August 13th at 10:15 PM (ET)

The Movie: The Fallen Idol(1948)
The Wine: Pagos de Tahola Reserva 2008

A neglected child thinks the servant he idolizes has committed murder. Black and White, 95 mins.

Tasting Notes: Because Tempranillo is a grape that ripens early, it should be paired with a young talent. Nine-year-old Bobby Henrey is the main character in director Carol Reed and writer Graham Greene’s classic British mystery.

 


 

Third Movie: Sunday, August 14th at 8:00 PM (ET)

The Movie: The Band Wagon (1953)
The Wine: Sendero das Meigas Godello 2011

A Broadway artiste turns a faded film star's comeback vehicle into an artsy flop. Color (Technicolor) 112 mins.

Tasting Notes: Because this Godello is named for 'people with amazing abilities,' who better to pair it with than Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse? These incredible entertainers represent two of the greatest eras of American musical film.
