Bottle Shock - DVD

Sommelier and wine shop owner Steven Spurrier, a British expatriate living in Paris, concocts a plan to hold a blind taste-test intended to introduce Parisians to the quality wines coming from elsewhere in the world (and save his business in the process). He travels to the not-yet-famous Napa Valley in search of contestants for his Judgement of Paris taste test, where a chance meeting introduces him to floundering vintner Jim Barrett of Chateau Montelena. Barrett wants no part in the competition, believing it is all a set-up designed by the French to humiliate New World wine producers (from the publisher).
I hadn't anything about this movie, just thought it would offer something a little different to watch. I was pleasantly surprised. It's not a film that will set the world alight, but does make a good story. Based on a true story.
Rating - I give this 3.5/5 Not bad!
Get this DVD from the library
