Dune Wine: What Will They Drink In Dune 2?

Dune Wine

If you’re a fan of science fiction novels from the 1960s, boyish gen-z actors, or sand, then you’re probably very excited for the month of march. Dune Part 2 is hitting theaters, this time with more worms, more desert, and more of Timothee Chalamet staring into the middle distance while having visions about Zendaya. As any fan of Dune can tell you, the spice must flow! But what about the wine? After spending a long time under the hot sun we can only assume that Paul Atreides, Chani, and the Lady Jessica will spend a significant amount of screen time relaxing in the shade with some classic vino. But what kinds of wine will they be drinking? Until the movie is released, we can only speculate on what the Dune wines will be.

Vinho Verde

A type of wine originally from Portugal, vinho verde literally means ‘green wine,’ and while sometimes it does have a slight greenish tinge, the name actually refers to its age. Vinho verde is usually pulled from the aging process early, and as a result it tends to be very light and tart. It’s best served chilled, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Timothee Chalamet cool off with a glass of this Dune wine after a long day riding sandworms and battling Harkonnens.

Merlot

In the world of Dune, there is nothing more important than Spice, a magical substance that slows aging and allows its users to see into the future. It’s also a component of many of the foods prepared in the desert, which leads me to think that a complex red wine with notes of clove like a merlot would pair excellently with a Spice-heavy meal that Paul and the Fremen might enjoy. I’ll bet anything that this wine appears in Dune Part 2.

The Best Dune Wine: Rosé

If Paul Atreides does not drink a full bottle of rosé on screen I think I will scream in the theater. If Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, and Florence Pugh don’t close out the film with a toast of beautiful pink wine I do not know what I will do, I’ll be so mad. From the very first behind the scenes photo of Dune Part 1 where I saw Timothee Chalamet as Paul, I thought to myself, that guy drinks rosé. I know in my bones that he will drink rosé. Please Warner Brothers I need this.
