Wine Date Night: Movie Night – SIDEWAYS! November 6, 2020


Friday, November 6, 2020
9:00 pm central time

The theme is the 2004 movie SIDEWAYS! Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara, The Hitching Post, key producers, what the movie got right (and wrong) and more will be discussed in our gathering. We suggest watching the movie in the days ahead of the class to re-familiarize yourself with the story.

No wines are required to taste along with the class, but it sure makes it more fun. You’ll get specific suggestions on wines upon purchase of the workshop.

Pop a bottle! It’s time for Wine Movie Date Night: Sideways!


A new Wine Date Night, focused entirely on a wine-centric movie! This week: SIDEWAYS, the classic bromance of Miles and Jack, and a tour of Santa Barbara Wine Country.

There is no other movie that has shaped the wine sales patterns of Americans more than Sideways. Suddenly, Pinot Noir was the go-to wine, and Merlot was unsellable. It also turned consumers onto the beauty of Santa Barbara County.

In this fun new Wine Date Night, we’ll be discussing the movie Sideways in detail, covering the producers that are featured, the restaurants they visited, the hotel they stay in, and of course the wine region of Santa Barbara, California.

Suggested wines to prepare for the webinar will be available to you after registration (go to “My Content” on the top bar of the site after purchase, then proceed to “Purchased Content” where you’ll find your link).

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 theĀ Wine Date Night: Sideways!
