The greatest wine lines, straight out of the movies

The greatest wine lines, straight out of the movies
Wine form such a big part in most peoples life that it even makes an appearance in some blog buster movies. To pay some respect to one of life’s life necessities, we decided to feature 10 legendary wine quotes, straight of the movies screen.
sideways The greatest wine lines, straight out of the moviesSideways (2004)
Miles: “If anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving. I am not drinking any fucking Merlot!”
Maya: “I love how wine continues to evolve, how every time I open a bottle it’s going to taste different than if I had opened it on any other day. Because a bottle of wine is actually alive — it’s constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks — like your ’61 — and begins its steady, inevitable decline. And it tastes so fucking good.”
Fawlty Towers
Basil Faulty: “I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here waynesworld The greatest wine lines, straight out of the movieswouldn’t know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret.”
Wayne’s World (1992)
Benjamin Kane: “Oh, actually all champagne is French, it’s named after the region. Otherwise it’s sparkling white wine. Americans of course don’t recognize the convention so it becomes that thing of calling all of their sparkling white champagne, even though by definition they’re not.”
Bottle Shock (2008)
bottleshock The greatest wine lines, straight out of the moviesGustavo: “You people. You think you can just buy your way into this. Take a few lessons. Grow some grapes. Make some good wine. You cannot do it that way. … You have to have it in your blood. You have to grow up with the soil underneath your nails, and the smell of the grape in the air that you breathe. The cultivation of the vine is an art form. The refinement of its juice is a religion that requires pain and desire and sacrifice.”
Gustavo: “It’s not from Napa. I can’t tell you whether it’s a merlot or cabernet. … I can’t say because it’s a 1947 Cheval Blanc. About half merlot, half cabernet franc.”
goldfinger The greatest wine lines, straight out of the moviesGoldfinger (1964)
James Bond: My dear girl, there are some things that just aren’t done, such as drinking Dom Perignon ’53 above the temperature of 38 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s just as bad as listening to the Beatles without earmuffs!
The Princess Bride (1987)
Vizzini: “Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly notyear The greatest wine lines, straight out of the movieschoose the wine in front of me…”
Year of the Comet (1992)
Maggie: “But it could be vinegar! I mean, old wine often turns to vinegar. ”
Oliver: “Well then, we either have a wonderful glass of wine, or a really expensive salad.”
French Kiss (1995)
Luc: “Never touch my vine.”
Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Hannibal: “A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.”
