Bottle Shock

Based on a true story, this charming seriocomedy is set in 1976 and follows British wine connoisseur Steven Spurrier (Alan Rickman) from his shop in Paris to the fledgling wineries of California’s Napa Valley, where he challenges the locals to a blind taste test. Convinced American wine will never stand up to that of the French, Spurrier finds his snooty confidence and preconceived ideas challenged by a tenacious vintner (Bill Pullman). With Chris Pine, Rachael Taylor, and Dennis Farina. 108 min. Click here to read more about the movie.

Why Calories Count: From Science to Politics

Marion Nestle and Maldem Nesheim have teamed up to explain the biological and political life of the food calorie. The concluding advice of the book is to “Get organized. Eat less. Eat better. Move more. Get political.” The book is available March 19th as an ebook and April 18th for hardcover. We can’t wait to curl up and read this one.
