In this episode, Michael helps the guys taste through three bottles of Napa Valley Chardonnay while discussing his approach to overseeing the new family & animation division of Miramax, how he generates his countless roster of movie ideas, and what it was like trying to keep up with Katzenberg’s epic executive schedule—including his legendary Sunday meetings at his house.
