    I read this report in El Pais and I saw no thesis at all. Merlot was in fact very damaged by this movie and everybody in California knows that. You should go to Napa and ask there. I see a lot of hate in this article, calm down a little bit. You sound like a hater more than anything else.

    I’m a native Californian who worked at a well known Napa Valley winery for nearly five years and no, Merlot was not damaged by one line in a movie. This is a myth. But, this is besides the point as Sideways took place in Santa Barbara and had nothing to do with Napa Valley, which is the massive, gaping error that this journalist chose to ignore.
