Culinary cinema at Britannia Hall: Bottle Shock

  • Britannia Hall, Britannia Hotel
  • 03. September 19:00 22:00
Join a fascinating journey in the intriguing universe of wine production with a film screening and wine tasting!

The ticket includes the screening of Bottle Shock and blind tasting of four types of wine, as well as snacks and a glass of bubbly during the film.

The Judgement of Paris 24th of May 1976 have passed down in the history books as a both beloved and hatet event. Stag’s Leap and Chateau Montelena from Napa Valley, United States beat the best wines from France in a blind tasting performed by some of the most important wine connoisseurs from France – a scandal for French wine and a breakthrough for American wine production. How could it happen? And have anything changed since then?

We invite your to a blind tasting of two American and two French wines, accompanied by a talk with four time Norwegian champion wine sommelier Henrik Dahl Jahnsen in Britannia Hall. The tasting is followed by a screening of Bottle Shock (2008), which tells the story of the fateful wine tasting in 1976.

This event is part of Culinary cinema, a program section from Kosmorama Film Festival that puts food culture in focus and combines culinary and cinematic experiences. Kosmorama is extremely proud to partner with some of the wonderful restaurants in Trondheim, Home of Nordic flavours!
