Bottle Shock

We saw this at closing night of the 2008 film festival. Whether or not you're a wine enthusiast, this is a fun movie with a long list of talented actors. Set during the early days of California wine making, the plot revolves around the famous blind Paris wine tasting of 1976 that was orchestrated by English vino merchant Steven Spurrier. Though parts of the story are set in in Paris, much of the film is shot in California's wine country, and a good portion of those shots are of the characters' beat-up jalopies cruising country back roads.
