We watched Sideways last week – what a great film. Could it be coincidence that the two most touchingly human films I have seen in the last two years have both starred Paul Giamatti?

Anyway, I was very heartened by the following quote, it made me feel far more justified in my own wine prejudices:

Jack: “If they want to drink Merlot, we’re drinking Merlot.”

Miles: “No, if anyone orders Merlot, I’m leaving. I am not drinking any fucking Merlot!”
