WITHNAIL AND I
From Withnail & I.
The first in a series of our favorite wine moments in film. And, frankly, my very favorite of them all.
TALES OF TERROR, The Black Cat
From Tales of Terror, The Black Cat. Vintage 1962, starring Vincent Price and Peter Lorre. Directed by Roger Corman and adapted from a story by Edgar Allen Poe.
Poe, Lorre, Price, Corman and wine… does it get any better?
*if you’re short on time, just be sure to watch the first 6 minutes*

ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS: A Bottle of Wine
Check out the entire play at Hulu….
Kevin Kline teaches Meg Ryan to taste the wine, using what was clearly the inspiration for that Le Nez du Vin kit which retails for a mere $450. Perhaps we should all make our own kits…
THE MUPPET MOVIE
First of all, we love what Steve Martin is wearing. Obviously. Second of all, we appreciate that the wine couldn’t be corked. Bless the Muppets and bless Steve Martin too.
THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti…
Perhaps this rivals our first clip as far as our favorite goes… this is worth the 6+ minutes of your life.
“In U S and A, very rich people, like to drink a wine”
So it’s not a film. But it is a great filmed moment of wine tasting.
