Who can forget that iconic line from Keanu Reeves?
A Walk in the Clouds is the acclaimed 1995 melodrama set in post-WWII Napa Valley, where our main character finds love and learns of life. Join us for romantic Wine Date Night (it’s Valentine’s weekend, after all) where we will discuss the film, the wineries where they filmed, the world of post-WWII Napa Valley, and more!
We suggest watching the film ahead of our gathering. Easy to rent on Amazon Prime, Apple Movie, and other streaming services.
Says legendary critic Roger Ebert: “A Walk in the Clouds is a glorious romantic fantasy, aflame with passion and bittersweet longing. One needs perhaps to have a little of these qualities in one’s soul to respond fully to the film, which to a jaundiced eye might look like overworked melodrama, but that to me sang with innocence and trust…At a time when movies seem obligated to be cynical, when it is easier to snicker than to sigh, what a relief this film is!”
The Wine Workshops are designed to be a fast infusion of wine knowledge, taught by one of the most experienced wine educators in the country, certified sommelier Jason Kallsen. When properly and clearly explained, wine does not need to be intimidating. Which of course makes it much more fun.
We hope you can join us for Wine Movie Date Night: A Walk in the Clouds.
