Kudos for Encore! Encore!
12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have worked in the wine industry for 23 years as a winemaker and I have watched shows that supposedly have to do with the industry, namely Falcon Crest, and I cringe at what the world must think of the stuck-up, self-centered characters portrayed in that show. My experience with winemakers and the people involved with creating wine from grapes is that our world is fun, entertaining and that we have the best jobs in the world. What's better is that we know that we're lucky to be here and we involve as many others as we can. More to the point the wine industry is closer to M. A. S. H. than it is to Falcon Crest and I was always hoping that someone would reflect that. Someone finally did and they got it perfectly in Encore! Encore! Nathan Lane was the perfect comic and they couldn't have cast a better straight role than Glenne Headly. Maybe the world wasn't ready for the wine business as it really is but I enjoyed every minute and I wish someone would create another show with the same format. I would give anything to consult on that adventure. In closing, if you can ever find copies of the show don't miss it. Open up a quaffable Zin or join us winemakers and open a good dark brew and enjoy the show.
