Famous Movies With Wine

Wine has been a part of world culture for ages. Whether during special occasions, or taking away stress after work, people love to drink wine. Now, let’s take a look at some of the most famous wine films in the past decades:

Sideways (2004)

Sideways is a hilarious comedic drama that follows two men throughout a weekend into Santa Ynez Valley wine country. One of the men, Miles, a teacher and down-on-his-luck writer, is accompanied by Jack, Miles’ college buddy, and an actor who is about to tie the knot. They have very different reasons for going on the trip. In the middle of the trip Miles meets Maya, while Jack meets Stephanie. After a series of romantic, sexy, and funny escapades, the who adventure ends up bad for Jack, while Miles is left to help him and clean up the mess. One of the most famous quotes from this movie was from Miles, when he says, "I'm not drinking any f***ing merlot". Indeed, one of the best wine movies ever.

A Walk in the Clouds

Set after World War 2, this romance drama was overlooked by many critics and viewers alike mainly because Keanu Reeves had never been known to play the romantic leading man. But he did give a decent effort, and along with the rest of the cast and crew, created a film with unforgettable imagery. The plot is simple enough. Paul meets Victoria on a bus, defends her honor from a bunch of thugs, promises to help her out with her problems by posing as her husband. It is a tender period piece that touches the hearts of viewers, all the while taking them through the heavenly Napa Valley wine scene.
