Top 10 Movie Quotes About Wine, Part II

The Sequel

I have decided that, like basically everything Hollywood-related, ever, my post of the Top Ten Movie Quotes About Wine is getting a sequel. Deservedly, or otherwise.

Sure, there will be some more Sideways and Bottle Shock quotes, but I’m including a few different films, as well.

Well, without further ado…

Lloyd, Dumb and Dumber (1994)

I’ll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I’m talking about a little place called Aspen.

Miles, Sideways (2004)

Stick your nose in it. Don’t be shy, really get your nose in there. A little citrus, maybe some strawberry… passion fruit… and there’s the faintest soupcon of like… asparagus… and just a… a flutter of a nutty Edam cheese.

Steven Spurrier, Bottle Shock (2008)

“Wine is sunlight, held together by water.” The poetic wisdom of the Italian physicist, philosopher, and stargazer, Galileo Galilei. It all begins with the soil, the vine, the grape. The smell of the vineyard —like inhaling birth. It awakens some ancestral, some primordial… anyway, some deeply imprinted, and probably subconscious place in my soul.

Waiter, The Muppet Movie (1979)

Sparkling Muscatel. One of the finest wines of Idaho.

Miles, Sideways (2004)

It tastes like the back of a fucking L.A. school bus. Now they probably didn’t de-stem, hoping for some semblance of concentration, crushed it up with leaves and mice, and then wound up with this rancid tar and turpentine bullshit. Fuckin' Raid.

James Bond, From Russia With Love (1963)

Red wine with fish. Well, that should have told me something.

Chet, Kicking and Screaming (1995)

If Plato is a fine red wine, then Aristotle is a dry martini.

Maya, Sideways (2004)

You know, the day you open a ‘61 Cheval Blanc… that’s the special occasion.

Porthos, The Three Musketeers (1993)

The picnic was delicious, the wine was excellent, remind me to send the Cardinal a note.

Brennan, Step Brothers (2008)

It’s the fucking Catalina Wine Mixer!

And, like last time, a bonus quote from television…

Homer Simpson, The Simpsons: “Homer vs. The Eighteenth Amendment”, (1997)

To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!
