Bottle Shock - Movie and Blind Taste Test
We will do a Blind Taste test of Napa Valley and French wines, and watch the movie Bottle Shock. About the Movie: In 1976, Steven Spurrier, a sommelier in Paris, comes to the Napa Valley to take the best he can find to Paris for a blind taste test against French wine. He meets Jim Barrett, whose Chateau Montelena is mortgaged to the hilt as Jim perfects his chardonnay. There's strain in Jim's relations with his hippie son Bo and his foreman Gustavo, a Mexican farmworker's son secretly making his own wine. Plus, there's Sam, a UC Davis graduate student and free spirit, mutually attracted to both Gustavo and Bo. As Spurrier organizes the "Judgment of Paris," Jim doesn't want to participate while Bo knows it's their only chance. Barrett's chardonnay has buttery notes and a Smithsonian finish. Chardonnay and a good movie..what more can a girl ask for? The amount of interest will determine the venue- it will be either North Van or Vancouver, on a Friday night in July.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    The purpose of this group is to have events where we explore wine.

    Whether we visit a new venue, build our own events, invite sommeliers or winemakers out to share their knowledge, the focus will be on casual fun and an interest in wine.

    If you're a beginner, and you think wine smells like wine, this group is for you. If you're a blind-tasting phenom who can scare a cork out of a bottle just by staring, this group is for you. This group is for anyone who has the passion and willingness to ge out there and enjoy wine in a fun environment, with fun people.
