Ep26: California Dreamin’

It all started as a dream out west, where “hicks from the sticks” had a passion for wine but without a platform to stand on. What better way to celebrate our podcast’s 6-month-versary than with an iconic wine and topic that literally brought the great USA into the international wine game?! Popping a bottle of Château Montelena’s Chardonnay, we talk about the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting (aka, the Judgment of Paris) where Californian and French wines went head to head in a blind tasting with a shocking outcome. For an entertaining spin on it, check out the movie Bottle Shock and then listen in as we discuss fact versus fiction about the movie and this historic wine moment! Cheers to Napa’s magnificent triumph!
