Princess Bride Wine? As You Wish!

By: Victoria Phillips

It has been 25 years since The Princess Bride graced the silver screen, but the characters (and quotes!) are truly timeless. In honor of this cult classic, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is releasing a line of wine called “The Bottle of Wits” with two varietals. (You know the scene, Wesley rescues Princess Buttercup from Vizzini by outsmarting him in a “battle of wits.”)

The “Battle of Wits” sequence between Cary Elwes and Wallace Shawn easily stands toe-to-toe with “the Sideways Spit Bucket” and “ The Silence of the Lambs Chianti slurp” as wine’s shining moment in film,” said Alamo CEO and Founder Tim League.

A California Cabernet, or “Inconceivable Cab,” and a “As You Wish White,” a California blend, debut at all Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations on Valentine's Day, and will be available for purchase online soon.

“Inconceivable Cab” is a 2009 vintage California Cabernet, with a deep ruby hue and is medium bodied, full of plum and black cherry fruit, balanced by firm acidity and tannins.

The “As You Wish White” is a light golden hue in the glass. T his refreshing California blend is medium bodied with balanced acidity, and has bright clean tropical fruit & green apple aromas.

And if you live near an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema location, don’t miss the first The Princess Bride Quote-Along and Feast featuring dishes like Screeching Eel Salad, Seared R.O.U.S. and "Twue Wuv" Truffles. Visit drafthouse.com for more information.
