Friday Follies in Film: Vicky Christina Barcelona Rioja?

In Drink, Film on January 23, 2009 at 9:54 pm


Friday Follies is usually reserved for guest bloggers, but I couldn’t resist after seeing Vicky Christina Barcelona on the plane ride over to Madrid earlier this week. One can’t help but notice that wine seemed to play a key role in this totally fantastic film. After all, Javier Bardem’s character sets the plot in motion by propositioning Scarlett Johansson and Rebecca Hall with: “We will eat. We will drink wine. We will make love.” Bardem, in fact, subsequently seduces both women with glass after glass of Spanish wine, and of course his Javier Bardemness. And after a week in Madrid during which I’ve fallen head over heels all over again for Spanish wine, I have to think they were drinking Rioja. Like maybe a seductive glass of  Finca Valpiedra Reserva with soft cherry and cocoa flavors and pretty floral aromas. It’s enough to make you fall in love.
