All the ladies from ‘Wine Country‘ including Tina Fey, Paula Pell, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, and Rachel Dratch sat down with PEOPLE for a round table interview. The result is – as usual with these ladies – hilarious! They also played a drinking game ‘Never Have I Ever’. You can watch both videos below!
Amy was interviewed by the New York Post to talk about ‘Wine Country‘, her go-to hangover cure, her tips on the best wine and much more. You can read the two articles in our press library below.
The movie is maybe the unsnobbiest wine flick ever, which Poehler says is by design.
“There are a lot of films that celebrate the making of wine or the way it tastes,” she says. But here, the vineyard setting lends pretty views and encourages bonding. “There’s so many times in the movie where we don’t want to be told what we’re drinking. We’ll just shut down sommeliers completely.”
Returning to Napa and exploring wineries between filming was a good excuse to indulge in an old interest from her pre-fame days, when she waited tables in Chicago between improv performances.
It was just announced today that ‘Making It’ was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards. The show is nominated for the Competition Series award. It is the first time this award is happening and the ceremony will take place on Sunday, June 2 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. The ceremony will air on VH1 the next Sunday, June 9.
