Spring Forward

A small gift to celebrate the extra hours of sunlight - the trailer for the new movie, "Bottle Shock." Set in the 1970s, based on the story behind the birth of the Napa wine industry that culminates in the triumph of California wines over French wines at the 1976 Paris Tastings - also known as, like the story from Greek Mythology, The Judgement of Paris (and we aint talking Paris Hilton's day in court, either). Starring the ever crushworthy Bill Pullman (Sleepless in Seattle and While You Were Sleeping) who plays the California winery owner and Alan Rickman who plays...well...Alan Rickman and Harry Potter's Professor Snape. But Rickman's character is the British wine merchant who sets up the historical tasting and no matter what part Rickman plays, he is one of the best.

"Wine is sunlight, held together by water." - Galileo Galilei
