Our Favorite Wine and Movie Pairings for Galentine’s Day

We’re not far away from the year’s romance holiday—Valentine’s Day. Whether you have a significant other or not, the best thing about Valentine’s Day is actually the day prior—Galentine’s Day. What better way to show and give love than relaxing with your closest friends? Friends around the world love the chance to get together and spoil each other, and this “holiday” gives them a reason to do just that!

This year, take advantage of all the wonderful movies we have right at our fingertips, and make them even better with some wine and snacks—because what girls’ day is complete without movies, wine, and snacks? To help you plan the perfect day of relaxation, connection, and joy, we’ve come up with our favorite wine and movie pairings for Galentine’s Day—from old-school classics to fresh releases, we have what you need to enjoy the holidays with your ladies. Take a look!

Black-and-White:

Roman Holiday

If you and your friends are fans of the black-and-white movie era, then Roman Holiday is right up your alley. Starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, this movie is an entire menu of fun and romance. Watch it and fall in love!

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

While you enjoy this classic’s nostalgic charm, sip on a glass of chilled Lambrusco. It’s just as bubbly as Audrey in the film, and it’ll make you feel like you’ve transported to the steps of the Colosseum.

For the Moms:

Otherhood

If you and your friends were able to find babysitters for the night, then you definitely deserve to pour yourselves a glass and watch this movie. Based on three mothers whose boys have grown up and left the home, the moms decide they want to be a bigger part of their lives and move in with them—and chaos ensues. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll hug each other a little tighter when the night is over.

WTSO’s Wine Pair

Pour the girls a hefty glass of an easy-drinking red…and then hit the heavier-bodied reds as the movie goes on. You’ll want to complement the emotion in this movie with some wine that can handle it—try out one of WTSO’s Last Chance wines! Open up one of the Pinot Noirs to start and then a bottle of Super Tuscan for later!

Fun Mom Dinner

Another great one, Fun Mom Dinner is about four women whose only commonality is their kids’ preschool class. When they get together for a harmless dinner, things get crazy. Cue ample alcohol, karaoke, a cute bartender, and an unforgettable night!

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

We suggest a sweet wine for this movie. Moscato—red or white—will be an easy sipper that adds to the fun you see on screen. If you’re not a sweet wine drinker, aim for a light-bodied red, like an easy Pinot Noir!

Fabulous Rom-Coms:

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

How could we not include a Matthew McConaughey flick on a list of Galentine’s Day movies? How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is the iconic film that women around the world love. From hilarious card games to swanky formal dresses, this movie will start your girl’s night off right.

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

We absolutely suggest Rosé when you watch this movie. Andie’s personality is pure Rosé—choose a Provence Rosé for some high-class movie watching!

How to Be Single

You can’t go wrong with another “how to” rom-com! You’ll love the fun friendship between Alice (Dakota Johnson) and Robin (Rebel Wilson). Join on the journey from breakups to late-nights in the Big Apple. You and your girls will no doubt want to plan a girl’s trip of your own after watching this movie. Dig into the idea of enjoying the single lifestyle with this chick flick!

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

For this comedy, we suggest pouring a few glasses of your favorite light, easy-sipping wine. Whether you choose a simplistic Rosé or opt for a Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc, you and your girls are sure to enjoy.

For the Criers:

Me Before You

Of course, if you and the ladies want to cry, you can always go for a Nicholas Sparks movie. But if you want to switch it up this Galentine’s Day, then we highly recommend Me Before You. In this flick, adapted from the JoJo Moyes novel of the same name, you’re tossed into the life of quirky Louisa Clark as she becomes the caregiver for Will Traynor. There’s love, laughs, loss, and more love—definitely a movie for you and the girls.

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

We recommend a deep red for this movie. Grab hold of our Common Italian Reds Weekly Tasting package, and you’ll get four bottles of fantastic reds for the movie. From Chiantis to Montepulcianos, you won’t want to miss it.

Favorites and Their Sequels:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before and P.S. I Still Love You

If you were a fan of Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky in the first film, then you’re sure to love the twists and turns that are expected in the sequel. P.S. I Still Love You is expected to premiere on Netflix the day before Galentine’s Day, so get ready.

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

We suggest a light Pinot Grigio or sweet Riesling for these films. The lighter the better, to keep up with the sweetness of these flicks!

Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

If you and your girls are musical fans, then you’re sure to love the joy that comes along from watching these movies. Enjoy the talents of Meryl Streep as the fabulous, yet over-worked, Donna on a remote Greek island. From flipper dance scenes to flashes to the past in the sequel, you’ll fall in love with every inch of this movie.

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

When it comes to watching musicals based in Greece, we have to go for a crisp and refreshing white wine—grab a bottle of Moscofilero or even go sparkling with a nice Brut Rosé.

Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2

Who doesn’t love Reese Witherspoon? One of her movies had to make her list—she’s been in so many girl’s-night-in-worthy movies that it was hard to pick just one…which is why we picked two! With a Legally Blonde 3 supposedly in the works, it’s even more reason to spend your Galentine’s Day with the empowering Elle Woods.

WTSO’s Wine Pair:

Get into Elle Wood’s bubbly spirit with some bubbly of your own! Grab your favorite bottle of Champagne for this pair—sweet or dry, rosé or blanc, any one you choose will work.
