23 Movies On Netflix That Go Perfectly With Wine
There's very little that can't be fixed with a glass of wine and a movie. If you're having a bad day, recovering from heartbreak, celebrating, hanging out with friends — whatever the situation — sitting down with a glass of wine and a movie (as long as you're of age, of course) is always appropriate. The best part is that you don't have to worry about pairing red, white, rosé, or whatever was cheapest at the bodega. Really, any movie goes with any wine if you try hard enough. That said, not all movies will help enforce that warm, bubbly buzz you want when you curl up in front of your television at the end of a long day. But these 23 Netflix movies that go perfectly with wine will help keep that relaxation going.
Before you break out the corkscrew and wine glass, know that these movies were picked to help you feel relaxed with a glass of wine and prevent as few spills stains as possible — that means no jump scares and little to no action. The movies on this list are also great for viewing in groups or alone, so feel free to lock yourself in your room for the night with a big glass of wine and your parents' Netflix password — hey, it's a no-judgment zone — or invite your roommates to join. Now, go find the best wine $10 can buy and enjoy a night of film and chill(ed) wine with these 23 movies on Netflix that go perfectly with wine.
