​A comedic retelling of Jane Austen's beloved battle of wits and hearts, WINE AND PREJUDICE takes the classic story of Pride and Prejudice with a twist (or a taste) unlike any other. Set amongst the consumers of the Willamette Valley wine industry, lovers of the quirky unknown towns in the Pacific Northwest where hundreds of vineyards line the low hills will appreciate the in-jokes of the region. There is a harmonious juxtaposition of a fancy industry with a population that just doesn't want to do fancy. Wine moguls like Netherfield Vineyards and Pemberly Wine Co would never purchase vineyards to expand their business from the Napa Valley in California - would they? Yes, they would. Charles Bingley comes to town and begins to woo Jane Bennet. His friend, Darcy Fitzwilliam, is an unpleasant, proud, arrogant asshole and Lizzy Bennet is determined to hate him forever. The rest is history. Maybe you know the story, but maybe you've never seen it like this; fresh, crisp, maybe on the smoky side, with a robust finish. Best tried with a Brie cheese and water crackers. Curl up with your own glass and blanket to read in delight, and laugh-out-loud-funny, as Lizzy Bennet and Fitz Darcy begin their age-old rivalry once again in a new century. Take a turn about the room with us, check the dregs, and have a sip. It delights, it satisfies. You're welcome.
