Pinot Drinkers Read This
While my eBlogs try to climb out from under a mystery router disease that is severely limiting access to the internet I'd like to point you all toward a little bit of fiction to pass the time. Sideways: A Novel is the basis for the movie of the same name that was mentioned on this blog on Sept. 20. As usual book and movie are sufficiently different to make both worth searching out. The narrator of the novel, Miles, is a pinot fanatic and the weeklong vinous rampage with friend Jack through Santa Ynez, California, wine country makes mention of numerous pinots. Its not great literature, but it is that rare book - wine fiction. If you have any interest in wine you will no doubt share a smile over many of the moments of wine passion.

While you are spending your money why not get the CD and the poster. Don't worry I'll tell you when the DVD is out.
