Abstract (Document Summary)

PORN star Savanna Samson's new wine seems to have benefited from last Sunday's New York Times story, which quoted revered wine expert Robert M. Parker giving it a rating of 90 to 91 and declaring it a "very fine wine." Samson has pre-sold all of the initial production of her Savanna Sogno Uno, a 2004 vintage of an Italian red that will be carried at Balthazar, Daniel and La Masseria. But porn aficionados needn't despair: Samson, a former Scores stripper now married to Manhattan wine merchant Daniel Oliveros, flew out to L.A. yesterday to film her latest X-rated opus, "Savanna Has Been Blackmaled," for Vivid Video.

Meanwhile, "Secretary" director Steven Shainberg - now completing his film about freak- obsessed photographer Diane Arbus (with Nicole Kidman in the lead) - is considering how to interpret the literary scandal, since he co- owns the rights to "Sarah," the "JT Leroy" novel. Of his planned screen adaptation of the book that helped to mythologize the faux writer's tawdry past, Shainberg tells PAGE SIX'S Steve Garbarino, "My intentions are to make it utterly beautiful, mystical, graceful, daring and outrageous." Shainberg has his hands pleasantly full elsewhere, having just gotten engaged to ravishing filmmaker Rachel Boynton, whose own political comedy, "Our Brand Is Crisis," just opened to raves in NewYork.
