Bottle Shock


"Four Stars," says Rex Reed. "Hugely Entertaining!" says Rolling Stone. "Rocky for wine aficionados!" raves Hollywood Reporter and other critics about Bottle Shock, the triumphant little indie about the birth of Napa's wine industry. The film has managed to hold its own amid studio blockbusters - proving that moviegoers love an underdog. The film is set in 1976 and tells the tale of a small American winery that bested the exalted french wines of the time in a blind tasting that has come to be known as "Judgment of Paris," the seminal event that put california wines on the map for good. "Bottle Shock" stars Bill Pullman as California winemaker Jim Barrett and Alan Rickman as Steven Spurrier, the Brit living in Paris who staged the event. Rex Reed proclaims, "Bottle Shock guarantees to revive everyone's flagging faith in American pride at home and abroad-something in these sorry, perilous times we're desperately short of."
