Drinkin’ Movie: Bottle Shock

Grab a big bottle of Cabernet, stuff it in your overcoat, head to your local cineplex, and check out Bottle Shock, a film about the now-groundbreaking 1976 “Judgment of Paris” wine competition that put American wine on the oenology map. My pal Bill Gibron gives it 3 stars out of 5 over on Filmcritic.com, but I expect (as with movies like Sideways), booze snobs will enjoy it even more.

From the review:

Still, thanks to its inherently interesting subject matter (who knew our efforts were so abhorred prior to ’76?) and the genial demeanor of the cast, Bottle Shock becomes a satisfying, if slightly syrupy entertainment. It’s not to be savored so much as sipped and sampled for what it is.
