As part of the Orkney Fine Wine Festival, the cinema will have its own wine bar for one night only, staffed by Tuscan winemaker Giacomo Alari. Giacomo will be pouring free tastes of his zippy Vermentino (white) and three different Chiantis (red) from 7pm. You can then buy your favourite by the glass or bottle at special festival prices – to drink during the film or take away. Glasses provided, and free water too.
Your entrance tickets will qualify you to 10% off wines at Kirkness & Gorie, Broad Street, Kirkwall, for the duration of the wine festival, 01 – 08 JUNE.
A hilarious film that seeks to discover the “wine country state of mind”. Corked! follows a team of “documentary filmmakers” and meets a motley crew of characters associated with four distinctly different wineries: the fiercely independent ‘one-man-show’, the established ‘family’ winery where the word family is a registered trademark, the rich kid attempting to make his mark in his father’s newly acquired vineyard, and two clueless marketing executives determined to tap new markets with an edgy high-concept label. A prestigious celebrity wine critic is coming to the area and everyone is trying to make sure their wine ends up on his golden palate.
