Bottle Shock is a sweet little wine movie.
Bottle Shock is a American comedy-drama film based on the wine competition termed the "Judgment of Paris" , when California wine defeated French wine in a blind taste test. Sommelier and wine shop owner Steven Spurrier Alan Rickman , a British expatriate living in Paris , is concerned with how to save his business in his daily conversation with Maurice Dennis Farina , a wine lover from Milwaukee who is Spurrier's regular sometimes only customer. He concocts a plan to hold a blind taste-test intended to introduce Parisians to the quality wines coming from elsewhere in the world. Spurrier travels to the not-yet-famous Napa Valley in search of contestants for his Judgment of Paris taste test, where a chance meeting introduces him to founding vintner Jim Barrett Bill Pullman of Chateau Montelena. Barrett wants no part in it, believing it to be a set-up designed by the French to humiliate New World wine producers.
