Five Board Miller's Bottle Shock
Source: The Hollywood Reporter
July 20, 2007


Chris Pine, Rachael Taylor, Eliza Dushku, Bill Pullman and Alan Rickman will star in Bottle Shock, a drama about the birth of the Napa Valley wine industry from filmmaker Randall M. Miller.

Set in the 1970s, the film is based on the true story of the Montelena Winery, which won an international wine-tasting competition and put the California region on the vino map.

Pine portrays the son of the vineyard owner who saves the winery and represents Napa in the French tasting, while Taylor plays a university student who interns at the winery.

Dushku acts as a local bartender, and Pullman is the owner of the run-down winery who clashes with his son.

Rickman is an Englishman who runs L'Academie du Vin in Paris and is the chief architect of the blind-tasting challenge that results in an upset victory for the American vintages.

The script was written by Miller and Jody Savin from an original script by Ross Schwartz. The film begins shooting Aug. 1 in Napa and Sonoma.

I think this looks really good, kinda has a Cameron Crowe vibe.
 
Wooooooow! That sounds absurdly boring! It reminds me of the terrible, terrible, terrible Sideways. ****ing wine movies, do me a favor...

I knew there wouldn't be enough grizzle and death in there for you my friend. :woot:
 
Yeah, indeed. I can think of a version that is up my alley. Replace the wine ******** with a drug ring, make those ****ty-ass wine tasters into vicious hitmen and add a dozen of big shootouts. And then you have a movie!
 
Yeah, that looks like overindulgent, really thin crap.
