During their time in the rolling hills outside of Santa Barbara, Jack announces his need for one final "fling" before he ties the knot. Thus, he drags Miles along for the ride, even though he just wants to throwback some legendary vintages. The pair meet two women, Maya (Virginia Madsen) and Stephanie (Sandra Oh) with whom they eventually develop a connection, resulting in a full-fledged affair between Jack and Stephanie. When she finds out that he is not actually single, she breaks his nose with her motorcycle helmet.
While trying to escape the stress of real life, Miles finds out his manuscript gets rejected again and, naturally, after a few too many wines, creates a scene in a restaurant and runs into the arms of another woman. We won't spill any more spoilers, but have a bottle or two of your own to pour during the drama.
Sales of Pinot Noir increased 20% during the 4 month period following the movie, and the Santa Barbara Conference & Visitors Bureau still offers up maps for visitors looking to trace the steps of the movie's characters. For those looking to swirl the same sips from the movies, head to Sanford, Hitching Post and Firestone Wineries.
