* In Theatre/TheHistoryBoys' fanfic [[http://archiveofourown.org/works/4161252 take my hand, take my whole life too]], Posner and Scripps briefly pretend to date. When they decide to figure out a story for how they started dating, Scripps suggested that he probably ordered wine because he wanted to impress Posner even though he hates it, and that Posner would have seen through it and made him order a lager instead.

* The ''Series/{{Columbo}}'' episode "Any Old Port in a Storm" stars Creator/DonaldPleasence as wine connoisseur Adrian Carsini, who is driven to murder when his playboy half-brother Ric threatens to sell off the family vineyard to a cheap wine-maker. He attempts to keep Columbo off his trail by teaching the detective how to appreciate a fine wine. [[spoiler: Adrian's sensitive palate proves to be his undoing: Columbo traps him by serving him a bottle from his own cellar, which he had inadvertently destroyed when he concealed Ric's body down there and turned off the air conditioning, not counting on there being an unseasonably warm day while he was away establishing an alibi.]]

* Oenophile[[note]]"wine lover"[[/note]] ''LordPeterWimsey'', who takes this UpToEleven. References come up periodically, such as his asking Harriet Vane to wear a wine-coloured dress and specifying the shade by specifying a vintage in ''Have His Carcase''. It's a major plot point in the short story "The Bibulous Business of a Matter of Taste", in which Wimsey goes undercover as Death Bredon and has his palate tested at a blind tasting; he has to name the producer and vintage (year of production) for a series of wines, some of them quite obscure.

If they'd all start drinking, then they'd all stop thinking,\\
and all of this shit would be fine!

** The manga is pretty much singlehandedly responsible for creating a renewed surge of interest in wine in Japan. Thanks to the miracle of internet wine ordering, thousands of Japanese people are treated to a charismatic character's opinion of a specific wine and can then go and order those very wines and taste them for themselves. [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2010/sep/22/french-winemaker-vintage-manga-cartoon Some winemakers found their orders from Japan doubling or even tripling]].

* On ''WhiteCollar'', forger, art thief, and all-around ConMan Neal Caffrey loves wine, as does his millionaire hostess. Working stiff FBI agent Peter Burke is a beer man. This comes to a head in an episode when Peter needs to pose as a wealthy wine connoisseur and Neal, horrified that they'll be exposed, tries to step in. Peter rallies, MagnificentBastard style, and completely snows everyone.
* ''{{Frasier}}'' does this. He and Niles even were part of a wine club.
