Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch were interviewed by the Pride Source, where they talked about ‘Wine Country’, their LGBTQ fans, Amy’s fashion style and much more. This interview is so amazing and totally worth reading. You can read it all in our press library or by clicking on the button below!
Amy Poehler and Rachel Dratch are as thrilled as I am over Netflix’s meta itinerary for journalists like myself who have landed in Napa Valley, California to cover their new heavy-on-the-imbibing dramedy, “Wine Country.” Appropriately, the itinerary is: first, wine; second, wine; fifth, wine.
On an outdoor rooftop deck overlooking the idyllic, rolling views of Artesa Vineyards and Winery, one of their first interviews of the day and where they shot part of the film, Dratch, amused, told Poehler she didn’t realize Netflix was actually flying journalists to wine country for the occasion and hooking them up with a private tasting.
“And then they have to go write the thing,” enthused Dratch, rightfully beloved for her hilariously dry “Debbie Downer” skit on “SNL.” A laugh. “We’re golden!”
An impromptu in-the-moment sketch is born, as Poehler whoops a booming laugh herself and looks ahead to a day full of blitzed on-the-job reporters essentially reliving their movie, impersonating a juiced journalist who maybe enjoyed too much of Artesa’s very drinkable Rosado before assessing “Wine Country”: “I LOVED IT! What’s not to love?! Life is short!”
