1976, Napa Valley. One small American winery and its workers are about to show the French that the world’s finest wines will now come from the other red, white and blue. Based on an inspiring true story and starring Alan Rickman (Love, Actually), Bill Pullman (Nobel Son), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Rachael Taylor (Transformers), Bottle Shock is an “intelligent, affectionate, beautifully acted movie” (The Hollywood Reporter) that pours out the laughs. For connoisseur Steven Spurrier (Rickman), there’s no finer art than French wine, despite rumours that the new California wine country holds the future of the vine. Positive the small Napa wineries are no match for established French vintages, Spurrier challenges the Americans to a blind tasting. But when he finds the valley full of ambitious - and talented - novice vintners like Jim Barrett (Pullman) and his son Bo (Pine), he realises his publicity stunt may change the history of wine forever.
