A do-it-yourself California Bottle Shock tour


      If you’ve seen the new movie Bottle Shock, a Hollywood film about the famous Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 that put California on the world wine map, here’s a way to tour the locations where it was filmed.

     The California Travel and Tourism Commission has put together a Website with a self-guided tour of such locations as Chateau Montelena, where the winning wine was made, the real restaurant that played the role of the Aqua Vira in the movie, even balloon rides and massages.

     It’s a guide, not a tour. You have to make all the reservations yourself, including the almost-impossible-to-get-into restaurant French Laundry.
If you go, let me know how you make out.
