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!
