Saw the movie this weekend at an arthouse theatre. Had a good time, and it made me want to drink some wine. Big surprise, huh? Good thing I planned ahead (because you cannot buy wine in Georgia on Sundays, which is really stupid). I should show a photo of a Napa wine, but I don't have one handy. But this photo does tie in with a line from the movie: once the California wines bested the French wines in a blind taste test, one of the movie characters accurately suggests this this was just the beginning -- soon there would be award winning wines from South America, Australia, and even Africa. It was fun to see the British wine guy out of his element, and even more fun to see those French wine snobs get their comeuppance. The 1970s setting added to the fun of the movie, without it being about that.
