The “Judgment of Pittsburgh” – one of a kind tasting event!!

So far as I am aware, there has been no other tasting in the world that combined the film “Bottleshock”, an actor guest (Hal B. Klein who played “Shenky” in the film), a history lesson (guest Elizabeth Downer was a member of the Academie du Vin in Paris, and knows Steve Spurrier, played by Alan Rickman in the film) AND a blind wine tasting with wines representing modern versions of the varietals featured in the film.   In addition to this event’s rarity, we are quite stoked because we think that a blind tasting with food and a little history and movie-making experience will make for a really fun time!  It has been sold out for weeks but we are finally here and ready for a great time – here are the wines to be tasted (blind, just like in the actual “Judgment of Paris” tasting):

  • US Chardonnay – the subject of the film: Chateau Montelena 2009
  • French Chardonnay (White Burgundy) – Louis Latour Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Blanc 2006
  • US Cabernet Blend – Josh Cellars Cabernet 2009
  • French Cabernet (Bordeaux Blend) Cordier Chateau Andron 2009
