An Amy Poehler comedy with wine in hand, obviously.

What's better than an Amy Poehler comedy?

The Parks and Recreation star and Burlington native is taking her talents to Netflix and will make her feature directorial debut with Wine Country, the streaming service announced on Tuesday.

The film, which Poehler - along with her cohorts - has been working towards her whole career, follows the group of friends as they head to Napa Valley to ring in a 50th birthday.

And it's not just the project director who's worth toasting. Tina Fey, Poehler's wing woman and fellow icon, will also be featured.

Fans will recognize former Saturday Night Live regulars Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, and Ana Gasteyer, who will also star in the film. "Get excited. Get real excited".

And even more exciting still is the fact that none other than Poehler's BFF (and our forever girl crush) Tina Fey will also make an appearance in the flick.

While a release date hasn't yet been given, thankfully, there are plenty of wine-relevant moments from Poehler and her co-star's archives that we can relive.

Though this is Poehler's first foray into directing a feature, she directed several episodes of Parks and Rec and Broad City.

Principal photography will begin toward the end of the month in Los Angeles and Napa.
