I own the DVD and watch it about once a year. In honor of the tenth anniversary of “Sideways,” I decided to list my f avorite wine movies. I am listing only f ive. I know there are many other movies that include a wine theme, but these are the tops in my book. I have placed them in the order of my pref erence. Favorite wine movies Sideways – 2004 This is a crazy movie about two misf its who take of f on a male- bonding trip to the Santa Barbara wine country. Miles takes Jack on a last hurrah bef ore Jack is to be married. Miles is a wine af icionado, and Jack quite the opposite. This is the movie that brought Pinot Noir to new heights in the world of Calif ornia wines. The movie had such an inf luence that Pinot Noir sales took of f . Just the opposite was the ef f ect on Merlot. Miles slammed Merlot with one sentence, “I am not drinking any F&#%!@?! Merlot!” Check out our Sideways Wine Trail. It f eatures all the Santa Barbara wineries that were f eatured in the movie “Sideways.” A Walk in the Clouds – 1995 This movie takes place in the Napa Valley and stars Keanu Reeves. Many of the winery vineyard scenes were shot at the Mount Veeder Winery and the Mayacamus Winery. Keanu Reeves is a soldier returning to his wif e af ter f our years of service in World War II. He meets a wonderf ul woman on the bus and it turns out her f amily owns a winery in the Napa Valley, a Mexican-owned winery at that. There many wonderf ul wine scenes. In one scene, the entire f amily awakes to f ight the f rost. The harvest scene is a classic! Another great character in the movie is the patriarch of the f amily, played by Anthony Quinn, an all around classy and loveable character. I am not sure why this movie does not get more recognition f rom the wine buf f s. It is very enjoyable. Bottle Shock – 2010 This is a movie based loosely on the f amous wine tasting in Paris in 1976. In a blind tasting, a Calif ornia Chardonnay (Chateau Montelena 1973) and a Calif ornia Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap Wine Cellars 1973)

Somm Chardonnay (Chateau Montelena 1973) and a Calif ornia Cabernet Sauvignon (Stags Leap Wine Cellars 1973) took top honors in a blind tasting over French wines. In “Bottle Shock,” the movie centers on the saga of Chateau Montelena and owner Jim Barrett as he struggles to make and sell his wine. There is a lot of f iction in this movie but it is very entertaining. Sadly, there is no mention of Mike Ggrich who was the winemaker at Chateau Montelena at the time. One interesting point is that Freddy Rodriquez, who plays the part of Gustavo Brambilia in “Bottle Shock,” also plays one of the f amily members in “A Walk in the Clouds.” You Will Be My Son – 2013 This f ilm takes place in St. Emilion and is the story of an estate owner who is not happy that his son will eventually inherit his estate and run the winey. He does not think his son has the skill to carry on the quality of his wines. As you learn later in the movie, there is a deeper reason why he f eels this way about his son. The movie takes quite a turn with a surprise ending. We love the scenes in the old wine cellar, digging through the wines and f inding many treasures. The movie is in French with English sub-titles. Somm – 2012 This is a documentary f ollowing f our men preparing f or the hardest test in the world, the Master of Wine Sommelier. I love the cinematography in this movie. We see vineyards, barrels, wine, wine glasses, and close- ups of each of the sommelier candidates. It is very artistic. I think you have to love wine to really enjoy this movie.
