Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): As Spurrier (Alan Rickman) is tasting wines in the bar in California, we see half of a Benziger Cabernet label - a yellow label on a bottle with a red foil wrapping on the neck. You can clearly see the last three letters of "Benziger", a vineyard that wasn't founded until 1980.
  • The real Jim Barrett, owner of Chateau Montelena, appears in the film as a vineyard owner who pours a wine sample for Alan Rickman. Mike Grgich, the real-life winemaker at Chateau Montelena (and the man who was most responsible for the award-winning 1973 Montelena Chardonnay), appears in several scenes at the chateau, standing next to Bill Pullman as he takes a wine sample from a barrel.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Spurrier leaves the tasting fee under the ashtray and the owner picks it up, it is a new style bill with the large numbers which were not in use until the nineties.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): At the end where Steven and Maurice are at Steve's wine academy store, they toast their wine glasses. Steve uses his right hand to Maurice using his left hand. When the camera angle changes (reverse shot), pointing outside the front glass display window to looking inside them, Maurice's hand changed to his right hand holding the wine glass.
