Our 2018 Vintage Screening season begins with a screening of Groundhog Day, the acclaimed comedy that (literally) doesn’t age…! Take your seats in Averys atmospheric cellars, accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of wines picked by Averys resident experts, all based around a recurring noble grape – you’ll want another, and another, and another.
Guests enjoy sparkling wine on arrival, with bread and cheese courtesy of Arch House Deli to enjoy during the film, along with four carefully chosen wines (details announced soon).
Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.
Cynical weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) is assigned to report on the annual Groundhog Day celebrations in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. Waking up the next morning and ready to leave, Phil instead finds himself trapped in a time loop, living the same day over and over, and is forced to confront his outlook on life and reassess the things that truly matter to him.

THEY SAY: “Groundhog Day is a film that finds its note and purpose so precisely that its genius may not be immediately noticeable. It unfolds so inevitably, is so entertaining, so apparently effortless, that you have to stand back and slap yourself before you see how good it really is.” – Roger Ebert, 2005
WE SAY: This might sound like another related pun, but Groundhog Day really is one of those films that you can watch again and again and still find something new to enjoy. Warm, deadpan funny, and Bill Murray at his best – and a perfect pairing with an unusual wine tasting!
