   Calvinesq  2008 Movie (one of my favorites )
In the 1970's a British wine shop owner, a sommelier, in Paris comes to the Napa Valley California to take the best wine he can find to Paris for a blind taste test against French wine. Based on a true story, California wine bests the French wine in the competition. (My heart goes out to the victims of the recent devastating fires in California wine country. ) Actors and Movie?

   StormCnter  Our eldest granddaughter is progressing through her education and work opportunities in the wine industry to become a sommelier. It's much harder to achieve that level than most might think. I agree with Calvin that this was a good movie and based on a really nice story. I'll wait for others to provide the answers.

   MeiDei  I can only add that I believe the fellow in the middle is Alan Rickman.

   Calvinesq  Storm gets the movie title. The other actor in the pic is Chris Pine and the actress is Rachael Taylor. Other cast members included Bill Pullman, Freddie Rodriguez and a smaller part by Dennis Farina. Yes. It is a feel good movie.

   Calvinesq  Also, Storm, best to your granddaughter. Hope she can teach me some things about wine someday!

   StormCnter  We tease her a bit, Calvin, when she insists we do a certain amount of rolling a bit around in our mouths and inhaling the fragrance before anyone can actually drink it. However, she is very good.
