Maya’s Wine Speech from Sideways

“I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes. And if it’s an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I’d opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity.”

    1. I agree with your love for Maya’s quote but not your marginalization of the movie “Sideways”. Not when it drove the popularity of Pinot to new heights, and accelerated the demise of marginal Merlot!

      “Bottle Shock”, now THAT was a marginal wine movie – pleasant enough, but without the soul (dark as it may be) of “Sideways”.
