This event from featuring the movie Sideways at Gordons has been canceled. I'll leave my related commentary posted here- sorry for pointing you to a non-existent event.
One of my favorite wineries featured quite prominently in the movie is Sanford. It's one of the first tasting rooms Miles and Jack stop in. If you watch closely there's a few other wines that play bit parts that are a little harder to find. Specifically, I always enjoy the scene where they're enjoying dinner with Maya and Stephanie for the first time and they're cranking through way too many wines. A nice bottle of Burgundy, a bottle of Kistler...on and on. At around 42 minutes in is a Pinot Noir that I've wanted to try for a while and just recently did- Sea Smoke:
I wrote-up my impression of the 2004 Sea Smoke Southing Pinot Noir HERE. Really oustanding stuff I'd encourage you to buy if you see it around, and if not- seek it out.
I'm headed to a Chef's Table dinner tonight at one of my favorite restaurants- The Capital Grille on Newbury Street. Some friends and I won it in a WGBH auction earlier this year- really looking forward that.
Whatever your plans are, I hope you have a great weekend!
