Bottle Shock Movie & Wine Night

A few photos from our August 17th combination movie night and wine tasting: Bottle Shock.

Presented by the Club's Cinefile Society, "BOTTLE SHOCK" is the true story of how in 1976 a simple California wine turned the wine industry on it’s head and left a few French connoisseurs with sour grapes.

Our friend and movie critic extraordinaire Thom Ernst talked about the movie and Brian Perry our resident sommelier shared the secrets behind the delicate tastes and aromas of a truly fine wine by leading us through a blind tasting.

A great time was had by all.
