Vertical: Passion And Pinot On The Oregon Wine Trail
Vertical: Passion and Pinot on the Oregon Wine Trail
Vertical Passion and Pinot on the Oregon Wine Trail is the continuance of the Sideways characters Miles and Jack as they travel to the International Pinot Noir Celebration in the Willamette Valley. Hilarious and serious, this road trip takes surprising and unexpected turns. LA Weekly termed it a "comic masterpiece".
Vertical is written fluidly and wittily. At once you as the reader are pulled right in, hence the lack of investment time to "get into" the story. Vertical could have easily been written in first person, probably as a semi autobiography, but instead Pickett lets Miles tell it in third. You cannot help but feel that you and the author are in an animated conversation about life. Two friends bonding over wine, sharing the crazy, the sad, and everything in between over a glass or five of Pinot Noir. I recommend.(Wine LaLa 2017-01-03)
If you are a fan of Sideways, check out this sequel. I hope that if they can get enough sales of the book, they will consider a sequel to the movie, and we can all watch Miles and Jack in their glory...
