Bottle Shock (R1) in February
Fox Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Bottle Shock on 3rd February 2009 priced at $27.98 SRP. Bottle Shock follows novice vintner Jim Barrett who, against all odds and expectations, defeated the heavily favored French varietals at the 1976 blind taste challenge called “The Judgment of Paris.” An unforeseen victory by any standards, this central event established California and Napa Valley’s reputation as one of the world’s top wine producing regions. Shot on location in Northern California wine country and using the real-life Chateau Montelena winery in many scenes, Bottle Shock stars Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Chris Pine, Rachael Taylor, Eliza Dushku, Freddy Rodriquez and Dennis Farina.
