Jan 15, 2022
Starring Nazneen Contractor and Brennan Elliott
Nazneen Contractor (“Ransom,” “A Winter Getaway”) and Brennan Elliott (”All of My Heart,” “Open By Christmas”) star in “The Perfect Pairing,” an all-new, Hallmark original premiering Saturday, January 15 (8 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s “New Year New Movies” programming event.
The movie was shot on location at the prestigious Pellar Estates Winery in Ontario, Canada. Influential and anonymous food and wine critic Christina (Contractor) finds herself at a winery she panned in the past. She hopes to leave before anyone finds out who she is, but she instead slips on ice and hits her head. The Hollingbrook family, led by single father Michael (Elliott) graciously takes Christina in while she recovers and tries to jog her memory. In the process, Christina helps the Hollingbrooks prepare for their annual wine tapping party, which includes Michael’s risky passion project, ice wine.
“The Perfect Pairing” is from Love and Ice Wine Productions Inc. Lewis Chesler, David Perlmutter, Robert Vaughn, Julie Di Cresce, Marek Posival and Alan Mintz are executive producers. Tiffany Swears is producer and Banner Isaac is co-producer. Don McBrearty directed from a script by Rickie Castaneda & Megan Hocking and Julie Sherman Wolfe.
