bottle shock

this is a comedy (2008) starring chris pine about how a napa valley chardonnay upset the french wine industry in 1976.
when a british wine connoisseur sets up shop in paris, he is unsettled to hear that california vineyards are becoming increasingly popular.

he decides to visit and taste them in person, ultimately setting up the historic blind tasting that would rock the european wine world.

(it is based on a true story and the winning vintage is actually on display at the smithsonian!)
