Wine – the ‘Sideways’ effect

Simon, over at Bloggasm wonders if Merlot will ever fully recover from the ‘Sideways’ effect.

Personally, the movie had little or no effect on my drinking habits. If I ever drink Merlot, it tends to be a kick-ass wine. As a matter of fact, one of the best wines I’ve tasted in the past year was a Shafer Merlot. The no-character crap Miles rants about in the movie was no doubt inspired by the cheap, mass-produced junk that had been flooding the consumer market for years, aimed at the lower end of the wine-buying price point.

Head on over to Bloggasm and check out what Simon has to say.
