Maya: So why are you so into Pinots? They’re like a thing with you.
Miles: “It’s a hard grape to grow, as you know. It’s thin-skinned, temperamental. It’s not a survivor like Cabernet that can grow anywhere and thrive even when neglected. Pinot needs constant care and attention, you know? And in fact it can only grow in these really specific, little, tucked away corners of the world. And, and only the most patient and nurturing of growers can do it, really. Only somebody who really takes the time… to understand Pinot’s potential… can then coax it into its fullest expression.” -excerpt from the movie “Sideways”
Pinot Noir is also known as Pinot Nero, Blauburgunder and Spätburgunder.
