With uptight Bordeaux taster Maggie (Penelope Ann Miller), infuriating beer drinker Oliver (Tim Daly) and the largest and rarest bottle of wine in the world anything is possible.
Maggie is the refined daughter of a London wine merchant; Oliver is a crude yet attractive gofer for a Texas wine connoisseur. Begrudgingly thrown together, they must save a bottle of Napoleon's own vintage a rare bottle of Lafitte 1811 from a shrewdly suave yet villainous scientist Philippe (Louis Jourdan). Philippe believes the bottle has something to do with eternal youth and so the chase is on... on foot, on a bike, in a helicopter and by plane. The result is a hilarious love story and an action packed chase across Europe.
