bottle shock

Whether you’re into wine or not, Bottle Shock is a great movie.  Bill Pullman, Chris Pine, and Alan Rickman (Snape, Snape, Severus Snape…) all star in this film based on a true story about a small winery in Napa who gets invited to compete in a blind taste test in France against the more popular French varieties.  The winery, Chateau Montelena, and their Chardonnay is the focus of the movie.  I caught it on netflix and highly recommend it if you get the chance.

Recently, I stopped by my local wine shop, Saint Louis Cellars, to see if they had any new wine in stock.  Low and behold, a bottle of Chateau Montelena Chardonnay sat in front of me. I was tempted but the $50 price tag is a bit above my wine budget at the moment.
