is here to talk about wine, whiteness, and wealth in Rex Pickett's 2004 best-seller, SIDEWAYS.
Jack is getting married and his best friend and best man, Miles, is taking him for a week-long bachelor trip to the Santa Ynez Valley for some wine-tasting and relaxing. Miles, a failing writer, and Jack, a trust-fund womanizer, take to the small and sleepy area like a tornado, with Jack desirous to have as many flings as he can before he walks down the aisle. Two unlucky women, Maya and Terra, get caught up in their shenanigans.
