In the summer of 2007, Hollywood descended on wine country. Randall Miller's Bottle Shock, filmed at Chateau Montelena Winery and other locations around Napa and Sonoma counties, tells the true story of a formerly little-known winery and its remarkable triumph over the French. Of course Hollywood would embellish a few of the facts, but there clearly is an accurate expression of the spirit of the time. Mr. Barrett’s mantra to the event personifies it well when he said “not bad for kids from the sticks”.
