I recently saw a free screening of great movie based on a true story about novice winemakers in California who end up taking on and challenging the French in making the best wine in the world!

Its called "Bottle Shock" and has a great cast and a wonderful soundtrack that Im trying to track down. Definitely worth checking out. It opens Aug 8 I believe. check out trailer at www.bottleshockthemovie.com.

It's going into my collection right by "Sideways". Is "bottle shock"" real, by the way? Can a wine bottle be tainted simply by getting rattled and shaken?

I just saw that movie - thought it was great - from my understanding bottle shock can very much happen when bottling, traveling (bottle is disturbed rattled) or shaken.

Found another movie i want to see - "Corked" looks alright.

Tom I dont think the question is why winelover dont become a member since he/she posted that over two years ago. The question should be why did winemaker_3352 bring it up, or better yet how did he manage to find it?

Didnt see when he posted. If you do a "search" anyone can pull up any topic which is what Winemaker did I bet.

I use it as well, however if a common word is typed in I find myself searching through thousands of post to find the one I am looking for.
I got smart and just stared subscribing to the ones even if I dont post in them. Makes it easier to find.

"Bottle Shock" really is a good movie and for the most part, a true story; at least the main storyline and outcome are true. I have watched it 4 times in the last six months. I get it over netflix as a streaming, online movie.

I'd recommend it to anyone who appreciates California wine.

I agree, on both. The biggest thing to remember about "Bottle Shock" is that's LOOSELY based on real events.
