Weekly Wine Quiz #3 – Judgement of Paris

Our last weekly quiz was about of the most significant dates in the world of wine – 1855. Another very significant “wine” date is 1976 – this is when famous Judgement of Paris took place. Depicted in the movie called Bottle Shock (second movie called Judgement of Paris is in the works), it was an event where a number of California wineries submitted their wines for the blind tasting against their French counterparts. The judgement was done blind and by the French wine critics, and California wines came on top of the French for many of those critics. This was the event which squarely put California on the worldwide wine map.

So here is the list of California wineries which participated in the Judgement of Paris, except one – again, my recommendation is that you will try to figure it out without reaching out to Google for help. Have fun. Cheers!
