    Another good movie about wine, "Bottle Shock."

      Uncorked, with Minnie Driver. A bit trite, but cute, and definitely a wine movie.

    Surprised you missed the movie “A Good Year” with Russell Crowe. A great movie about wine.

    As wine writers, can we just point out that in the book of Silence of the Lambs, it wasn’t a Chianti at all.
    The original (book) quote is: “A census taker tried to quantify me once. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a big Amarone. Go back to school, little Starling.”

    It was dumbed down for the film.

    Highly recommend “From Obscurity to Excellence: The Story of Grapes and Wines of the Russian River Valley.” Full feature documentary traces the history of the RRV AVA from the 1860s through the hard times of prohibition and the Great Depression, through the dominance of the national wineries to the final triumph of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay growers and wine makers of the 1970s.

    An inspiring story of grit, talent and taste! See trailer on the website. Viewing dates will be published late November 2012. Premier at Rochioli Winery is filled, but future public viewings are planned for Sonoma and Marin!
