The Great Wine Lines From the Movies

I had a conversation today with a winemaker who had a chance to sit with “Sideways” Director Alexander Payne, talk about wine, and discuss movies. We got to talking about that great scene when Virginia Madsen explains her love affair with wine and it got me thinking about my favorite Movie Wine Lines. Then, over at The Wine Cellar (A stellar wine blog) Rich has a post about favorite wine lines from any source. Well this inspired me to commit my favorite Movie Wine Lines into the blogosphere:

“I like drinking wine more than I used to…Anyway, I’m drinking more.
-The Don in “The Godfather”

“So? I like ketchup. It’s like tomato wine.”
-Oscar Madison in “The Odd Couple”

“You got da wine? Good. We can eat now.”
-Paulie in “Goodfellas

For a gallon of elderberry wine, I take one teaspoon full of arsenic, then add half a teaspoon full of strychnine, and then just a pinch of cyanide.”
-Aunt Martha in “Arsenic and Old Lace”

I’d rather have a case of the clap than a case of this wine.
-Vince in “Cousins”

Feel free to add your own…
