We’re on to another of the seminars from the 2014 World of Pinot Noir. This one had something of a unique twist – combining Hollywood and wine…or Vine, in this case.
The focus here was to talk about wine themes in film by honoring two wine movies, Sideways and Somm. This was also the 10th anniversary of the release of Sideways, a movie that ‘launched a thousand Pinots,’ and allegedly put the brakes to Merlot’s ascendancy.
Moderated by Sunset Magazine’s wine editor, Sara Schneider, the panel included Hitching Post’s Frank Ostini and tasting room whiz Chris Burroughs representing Sideways, and sommeliers Brian McClintic and Dlynn Proctor featured in the movie Somm that chronicled their efforts to pass the prestigious Master Sommelier exam. Of course, this wasn’t confined to just talking, as each of the panelists were also expected to identify several wines blind to demonstrate their respective wine prowess. L’audace, l’audace, toujours l’audace!
