I've just started reading Vertical, Rex Pickett's follow up to his novel Sideways - a beautifully written homage to California wines with a road movie thrown in - which, not unexpectedly, transferred to the big screen remarkably well. The sequel picks up Miles and Jack seven years later. A sort of Big Sur version of Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads. Miles, as you can see from the clip below, is an insufferable wine snob.
A terrific film. I have a friend who's more than a little like Miles when it comes to wine, though he would of course deny it. I'm an insufferable coffee snob myself.ReplyDelete

Coffee? Instant. Black. Simple.
