** Also, keep in mind that in 1980, wine made in places other than France or Italy or whatever (Like California Wine) was seen as a joke or mediocre. Nowadays, it's different. That said, to folks outside of Idaho, ''wine'' is not something that comes to mind when that state is mentioned.

* DudeNotFunny: There ''are'' wineries in Idaho, and they didn't see the humor in Steve Martin's "sparkling Muscatel" bit.

* DudeNotFunny: There ''are'' wineries in Idaho, and they didn't see the humor in Steve Martin's "sparkling Muscatel" bit. Then again, Muscatel is ''not'' produced in Idaho, which specializes in seasonals like Reisling and Chardonnay.
