Bottle Shock Official Trailer

French wines were once considered as the only quality wines in the world. But the the Judgment of Paris, when California wine beat French wine in a blind taste test, has changed this monopole in the world of wine.

Bottle Shock tells the story of what lead up to this famous Judgment of Paris. The movie is directed by Randall Miller and is starring Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman and Chris Pine. Bottle Shock is slated for a release in early August 2008.

Here below the first official trailer of Bottle Shock which was unveiled at the Sundance Festival:

Paris, 1976

Based on a true story.



The French never knew what hit them.

The Plot:
"English wine expert Steven Spurrier travels to the not-yet-famous Napa Valley to learn about California Winemaking. There he meets a struggling vintner and discovers wine so extraordinary he decides to organize the famous Judgment of Paris taste test." (Source: Wikipedia)

I was wondering about the title of this movie. Actually it is not random, here a definition of this expression:

Bottle Shock: Travel shock. A temporary condition characterized by muted or disjointed fruit flavors. It often occurs immediately after bottling or when wines are shaken in travel. Rest is the cure!!

I don't like alcohol and thinks that whatever the wine it just tastes awful, but Bottle Shock seems to be a nice movie. So I may give it a try.
