Sideways: Miles’ Pinot Speech and Quote

Maya: So why are you so into Pinots? They’re like a thing with you.
Miles: “It’s a hard grape to grow, as you know. It’s thin-skinned, temperamental. It’s not a survivor like Cabernet that can grow anywhere and thrive even when neglected. Pinot needs constant care and attention, you know? And in fact it can only grow in these really specific, little, tucked away corners of the world. And, and only the most patient and nurturing of growers can do it, really. Only somebody who really takes the time… to understand Pinot’s potential… can then coax it into its fullest expression.”

Miles Raymond, from the movie “Sideways”

    1. It’s not obvious. It is beautiful.

      What is obvious… to the beautiful… is the moment she falls in love with him.

      ..because she realizes she is most patient and nurturing of growers who can take the time to coax his soul to its full expression.

      I live for this shit.
