THE PRINCESS BRIDE QUOTE-ALONG & FEAST
“Aaaaaaaas... Youuuuu... Wiiiiiiiiiiiish!”
This thoroughly tongue-in-cheek, forever quotable, swashbuckling fairytale is by far one of our all time favorite movies. How can it not be? THE PRINCESS BRIDE gives us a dread pirate, insanity-inducing cliffs, fire swamps, a reluctant princess, a wily Sicilian, a six-fingered count, mawwiage, Rodents of Unusual Size, tiny Fred Savage, fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, miracles and--most importantly--TRUE LOVE! We love this movie every bit as deeply as Westley loves his Buttercup, and so when we discussed launching our very own Alamo Signature Wine collection, we immediately knew that we had to start by featuring none other than THE PRINCESS BRIDE.
These wines will be available throughout 2012 and only 2012, and they’ll be debuting on Feb 16th at our PRINCESS BRIDE Quote-Along Feasts. So come to the Alamo, cozy up with your very own Buttercup or Westley, and indulge together in a sumptuous feast paired with wines that are perfectly matched to the derring-do, sharp wit, and butter-melting romance of THE PRINCESS BRIDE.
