Love Sideways: Ready to go Vertical?


From the author of the world’s most beloved wine novel comes the NEW Sideways sequel:
Vertical: Passion and Pinot on the Oregon Wine Trail

“Proof that sometimes the sequel is as good as—sometimes better—than the original.”
Michel Totten, Author of Where the West Ends

“Rex Pickett has not let us down. Welcome to Oregon Miles and Jack!”
Karl Klooster, Oregon Wine Press

It’s ten years later and these two road buddies—Jack, now divorced, and Miles, dealing with new found fame as a writer—reunite and travel to Oregon’s famed Pinot Noir country to the International Pinot Noir festival. Unable to keep it simple, Miles steals his septuagenarian mother away from senior housing prison, which means bringing her pot smoking caretaker as well. Not only do Miles and Jack find themselves in troubled, new relationships and almost unfathomable hilarious situations, but they confront sobering challenges of being over 40—and looking at 70. All of this set up in the heart-stoppingly, wine rich beautiful landscape of Oregon’s own Burgundy country. As one wine critic wrote, “If you like Sideways, you will love Vertical.”
