A charming fictionalized version of the early days of California wine making and the now infamous blind Paris wine competition of 1976 often known as the “Judgement of Paris” where California wines scored a shocking victory over France’s esteemed varietals.
Evening screening only:
The evening audience will be welcomed, via Skype, by Marcus Notaro of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, the creators of the winning cabernet in the infamous blind tasting. He will bring greetings direct from the Napa California vineyards where the harvest is set to begin. Notaro will also share some insider information to help audiences get a full-bodied enjoyment of the film. A small selection of Napa Valley wines will be offered for sale at the concession stand.
Limited Wine Tasting prior to evening screening:
For those who also want to taste some of the game-changing wines from the vineyard featured in the film, Bernie Vogel, an acclaimed wine educator will host an exclusive gathering prior to the evening screening. Bernie has a bottomless knowledge of wine and sets a welcoming atmosphere for learning to fully appreciate the complexity of wines and the wine industry. Guests will enjoy a guided tasting of samples of both the Chardonnay and Cabernet from the vineyards that were victorious in this infamous matchup. Tickets for the 6pm wine tasting are $30 per person and include 1½ oz samples of both wines, a full glass of reception wine, light appetizers, and premium seat selection for the 7:30 pm screening. Advance tickets are required for the wine tasting and are expected to sell out quickly as the reception will be strictly limited to 50 guests.
