There is a new movie out with a wine focus. Its called Bottle Shock. It is the story of the early days of California wine making featuring the now infamous, blind Paris wine tasting of 1976. It is based (very loosely by the appearance of the trailer) on George Taber’s book The Judgment of Paris. (This book is a good read for all wine geeks- FCPL has copies). I wonder what wine this movie will impact like Sideways did to Merlot? Here is the trailer:
It was released at the Sundance Film Festival and its in general limited release. Have no idea where it is showing around here. The DVD release date is unknown at this time.
