CHICAGO, Nov. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — If the release of more than sixty new made-for-TV holiday movies is any indication, the trend of people staying in to soak up soapy holiday dramas while sipping wine on the couch could be at an all-time high this holiday season. Wines of Sicily recommends updating your holiday wine pantry with fresh, diverse and romantic red and white varieties from Sicily that will make your holiday movie watching anything but predictable.

Predictable Holiday Movie Scene

Unique Wines of Sicily Pairing

A couple with nothing in common but great cheekbones find themselves unexpectedly under the mistletoe together. 

For the perfect romantic twist, try Nero d’Avola. Going beyond the typical Cabernet Sauvignon, Nero d’Avola is the king of Sicilian red wines — and the ideal choice when you’re in the mood for velvety, full-bodied flavor…and more. 

A horse-drawn carriage ride meets a fake snowfall making it a storybook setting for re-kindling an old high school flame. 

Move over Pinot Grigio. Looking for something in white with real authenticity? Try Grillo — balanced and aromatic with a light and refreshing taste, it’ll quickly become your go-to white wine. 

Love interests meet by literally bumping into each other on a decorated street corner.

Longing for your own serendipitous pairing? Meet Frappato — bringing together the best of both red and white wines, it’s a delightfully fruity medium-bodied red with a fresh, soft taste. Best served slightly chilled! 

The perfect family finds an even perfect-er Christmas tree. 

For the kind of perfection usually only found in holiday movies, try Catarratto. A refreshing white with notes of citrus and flowers, its versatility allows for a perfect fit for family members huddled around the TV and your go-to bowl of popcorn.  

Looking onto a family having a Norman Rockwell-esque dinner, seen through the cleanest front window that has ever been seen. 

Whether you’re eating at the dinner table or the coffee table, it should be dressed with both red and white wine varieties. For a flawless and elegant white, try Insolia with its understated fruit aromas and a soft finish. For a red, the diverse character of a Nero d’Avola fits in perfectly with almost any style of white and dark meats. Linger longer and your red will also pair with that luscious bite of chocolate cake.
