Bottle Shock Email from Leslie Sheridan

Hi All ~

I've got a bit of movie fun for you this weekend! ;)

You heard it through the "grapevine" . . . Yours Truly is an extra in the film below, (along with many other locals,) and according to a friend who saw it already, I made the Paris scene in the winery ruins in which the tasting results are announced. (I also am visible in profile in the trailer (see below) on the right in the front by the tasting judges about the third row on the right, with my hair up in a French chignon.) I may have made other scenes as well, as I was also in the entrance to the Country Club where the guy played by Chris Pine screeches his truck up to the Club, as well as in the Country Club restaurant. Then again, those cuts could have made the editing room floor as well!)

For those in the Santa Rosa area, those of us who were extras in the film are going to be arriving at the Realto between 6 and 7 p.m. in 70's attire, and they have a red carpet area complete with paparazzi. Should be fun!

Have fun wherever you see it!

Cheers ~

The Perfect Summer Wine Pairing with a Movie: BOTTLE SHOCK

Based on a true story, this feel-good, smart, and entertaining movie tells the tale of the rag tag kids from the sticks at Napa Valleys Chateau Montelena who bested the French in the historic blind tasting competition in Paris, France in 1976. Starring Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Freddy Rodriguez, Chris Pine, Dennis Farina, Eliza Dushku and Rachael Taylor. See the movie, and uncork a bottle of chardonnay before or after. A perfect pairing.

See the trailer and learn more about the film, and check the list of theaters at

Opening in select cities on Wednesday, August 6

Opens across the country on Friday, August 15th!

Spread the word! We want everybody to see our movie! And the first weekend is critical for an independent film if box office receipts dont meet the goal, the movie gets pulled from the theatre. Lets see if we can help BOTTLE SHOCK stay in the theatres nationwide into September!
