Some time last year, my husband and I rented "Bottle Shock", a movie we'd never heard of. It has some very fine actors, Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Dennis Farina. It's about a subject I love: wine...and not just any wine, California wine. It's the true story of how California wine was introduced as a serious contender to French wine in a 1976 blind taste test held in Paris. The results of this event were, heretofore unthinkable and forever changed the fortunes of California vintners. Worth the watch. Here's the trailer.
