“I put my best into the films I star in and the wines I select. I’m happy to have the opportunity to share them both with the audience,” Samson said.
“Wines, like movies, come in many styles,” she added. “Some are florid and romantic; others are profound and complex. I enjoy pairing films with certain vintages to create a wonderfully sensual and pleasant experience.”
A wine connoisseur and vintner, Samson debuted her own 2004 Sogno Uno and was given 90 out of 91 possible points by wine critic Robert Parker.
Among her recommendations, Samson suggests a cabernet sauvignon for videos with a masculine tone, or a sparkling moscato d’asti for more feminine-focused features. Champagne is suggested for a romantic double feature.
