Bottle Shock

Excellent film! I very much enjoyed the whole thing excepting the love triangle bit. I think that could have been left out as it didn't really add that much to the movie. The story was so entertaining, though. It's nice to see the underdog win. The Barretts are people who put their heart and soul into making wine, and it's more than just really good...it's a part of who they are and their history, and I think that is something to be admired and appreciated. I watched the extra on the DVD about their search for an excellent wine, and it was informative and neat to see the real Jim and Bo Barrett talking about their wine and wine-making process. Very cool. It was short, but it was still a good little feature. I love Alan Rickman and Bill Pullman, and both of them didn't disappoint in this film. The guy who played Bo - couldn't get over the hair, but he did well. Recommended to anyone who enjoys a good wine tasting or underdog story.

After seeing this movie, I want to purchase a bottle of wine from Chateau Montelena. I already took a look at their online store, and I will definitely be making a purchase in the future for a current Riesling release and maybe a bottle of Zin. I love Rieslings, and I am sure theirs will taste excellent.
