SIDEWAYS + Wine Tasting
May 6 @ 5:30 pm
Drink along with the film! Each ticket includes 4 wine tastings.
“If Sideways were a wine, its foretaste would be a flutter of nuttiness, its middle would have spicy nuances, and its aftertaste would be lingering and sweet.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
See Alexander Payne’s understated masterpiece, a cult favorite among film and wine lovers alike, how you always wanted to: alongside a wine tasting! Let us transport you to California wine country for the evening with a handpicked selection of wines for you to try in tandem with the film as you embrace your inner wine snob.
Throughout the film, you will taste a red, a white and a Rosé from the film’s California setting,as well as one French Grand Cru hailing from France’s Bordeaux region – a bottle as special as Miles’ own prized wine! And don’t you worry…there won’t be any f*ing Merlot.
The complete list of wines featured is:
Mumm Napa Brut Rose
William Hill Sauvignon Blanc
Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir
Chateau Vieux Lescours Grand Cru
Two men reaching middle age with not much to show but disappointment embark on a week-long road trip through California’s wine country, just as one is about to take a trip down the aisle.
