Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Sep 7th at 7:10 pm for Bottle Shock at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian wearing a black Orioles jersey in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
There are certain moments in history when America has proven itself to the world: Neil Armstrong setting foot on the Moon; or the US Mens Hockey team beating the Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympics. One such moment, however, never got the recognition it deserved: In 1976, a small American winery bested the exalted French wines of the time and sent the wine industry into a tizzy – putting California wines on the map for good. Based on a true story, Bottle Shock chronicles the events leading up to the famous Judgment of Paris tastings.
