Summary: There are certain moments in history when America has proven itself to the world: Neil Armstrong setting foot on the moon or the US Men's Hockey team beating the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympics. One such moment, however, never got the recognition it deserved: In 1976, a small American winery bested the exalted French wines of the time and sent the wine industry into a tizzy--putting California wines on the map for good. Based on the true story, Bottle Shock chronicles the events leading up to the famous "Judgment of Paris" tastings, told through the lives of father and son, Jim and Bo Barrett, as well as British wine shop owner, Steven Spurrier. Little did Steven and Jim realize that they were both on a course that would change the history of wine forever. (Freestyle Releasing)
