Los Olivos Cafe and Wine Merchant

Based on the novel of the same name by Rex Pickett, 2004's 'Sideways' tells the story of two old friends taking a getaway: Miles (Paul Giamatti) is a frustrated unpublished novelist with a broken marriage under his belt, who both masks and drowns his feelings of inadequacy in his love of wine. And then there's Jack (Thomas Haden Church), a struggling actor and reprobate intent on having one more bender before giving up his "freedom" and settling down with just one woman. Both are weighed with the disappointments of wasted youth and missed potential, and are on one last huzzah of a road trip through the vineyards of the central California coast before returning to reality for good.
