The Pinot Noir repartee between the characters Miles and Maya -- played by Paul Giamatti and Virginia Madsen -- in the Oscar-nominated film "Sideways" has helped spur dizzying sales of the red wine during a lingering U.S. glut, according to wine experts. U.S. filmgoers are salivating over the scene in which Giamatti's character -- a neurotic, failing author -- evangelizes Pinot Noir's subtle delicacy to Madsen's character in an attempt to wow her with his wine knowledge.

Writer-director Alexander Payne received numerous accolades from critics' organizations, as well as the Oscar and Golden Globe with writing partner Jim Taylor, for the screenplay of "Sideways," a darkly comic road movie about two buddies -- a washed-up actor about to be married and a divorced wine snob -- who go on a trip to the Santa Barbara wine country. So it seems a little odd that the filmmaker didn't do a commentary track on the DVD of "Sideways" (Fox, $30), which goes on sale today.

Los ANGELES feels a million miles away as we drive along Santa Rosa Road between Buellton and Lompoc. The sun-dappled grapevines, rolling green hills and pastoral pumpkin patches are a picture-perfect backdrop to the nearly 80 wineries and small farms that populate Santa Barbara County. They're also the setting for director Alexander Payne's movie "Sideways," a comedic, bawdy adventure that gives a starring role to local wines.

At the tender age of 32, Juliette Lewis has carved out a choice spot for herself in the Hollywood firmament.
