Screen gems

Some swell quotes from stars of stage and screen, some actually portraying a character and the others “in character”:

• “F**k the water. Bring me wine.” – The Hound (Rory McCann), “Game Of Thrones”

• “I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here Basilwouldn’t know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret.  “• Basil Fawlty (John Cleese), “Fawlty Towers”

• “A woman drove me to drink, and I didn’t have the decency to thank her.” ““ W.C. Fields

• “I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even add it to the food.  “• W.C. Fields

• Filmmaker and winery owner Francis Ford Coppola on his vocation and avocation: “The two professions are almost the same. Each depends on source material and takes a lot of time to perfect. The big difference is that today’s winemakers still worry about quality.”
