Netflix’s “Wine Country” Exclusive Clip: Paula Pell’s Lesbian Val Falls For a Younger Woman

Tomorrow, Amy Poehler’s punch-drunk gal pal comedy, Wine Country, lands on Netflix. The cast includes a whole host of SNL acting and writing alums, including Paula Pell, who plays a middle-age lesbian vintage shop owner named Val who just had knee-replacement surgery, is ready to fall in love again, and catches feelings for a server when she and her friends descend upon Napa Valley for a 50th birthday weekend.

And, hey, we have an exclusive clip of Val just for you!

You can read my review first thing Friday morning!

  1. Wow that server has some game! I had no game when I was a server, in fact, I vividly remember an incident where I accidentally poured seven Chinese spring rolls into a man’s lap by accident during my first week. I still cringe whenever I think about it.

  2. Aw, this looks like fun! She and Janine Brito and their 7 pets are one of the cutest queer families on Instagram–hopefully some of that dynamic shows up in the film.

    • Ah sorry – didn’t mean for this to be a reply. Cursed mobile interface.

  3. Does this mean Netflix is actually sending y’all screeners and stuff now??
