Film4 Summer Screen is returning to Somerset House from 16th to 27th August, and The
Wine Sleuth has teamed up with the official wine sponsor of this year’s events, Bordeaux
Wines, to offer a pair of tickets to one of the sold out performances – Indiana Jones and the
Temple of Doom (PG) on Sunday 26th August. All tickets are completely sold out so this is your chance to win tix.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets for the performance, all you need to do is
answer the following question:

Q: Bordeaux is the home of grapes renowned the world over. Name one of the three
most widely used grape varieties in Bordeaux blends.
Tip – there is a hint here

TO enter: leave the answer in the comment section at the bottom of this post.

Our lucky winner will be able to enjoy Steven Spielberg’s wild, whip-cracking sequel to
Raiders of the Lost Ark. The man in the hat is back when Harrison Ford returns as Indiana
Jones and the Temple of Doom. The action comes thicker and faster second time around, as
Indy’s search for a mystical stone leads him to a dangerous subterranean world and pits him
against a sinister religious cult.

Each evening a film will be shown on the giant screen with full surround sound under
the stars. The series will offer visitors an exciting and eclectic line-up of classic, cult and
contemporary films, enjoyed with Bordeaux wine by the glass or bottle.

Alongside the films will be an accompanying programme of insider talks and special events
as part of Behind the Screen, and ticket holders are invited to arrive early and listen to a line-
up of London DJs.

The official wine sponsor of this year’s events, Bordeaux Wine, from the South West of
France has produced red, white and rosé wines for centuries. Bordeaux wines will be on
sale at the Courtyard Bar and the CIVB will also be sampling wines from its 2012 Everyday
Bordeaux list. All these wines are widely available throughout the UK, priced £6-£20, and
have all been recommended by the Association of Wine Educators (AWE).
