Mondovino

A Feature film by Jonathan Nossiter

Produced by Les Films de la Croisade

Release in France : 03/11/2004

    Synopsis

    From the ultra-powerful millionaires of Napa Valley in California, to the battles of three generations of a Burgandy family that tries to fight to conserve its few acres of vineyards and the rivalry between two aristocratic Florentine dynasties, “Mondovino” is the saga of winemaking on three continents.
    But aren’t all these struggles of a secondary nature compared to the exploits of a playful pirate from Bordeaux who gaily spreads the good word of modernity from Italy to Argentina, passing through New York? Wine has been the symbol of Western civilization for thousands of years. But, never before has the fight for its soul been so fierce. Nor has there ever been so much money and glory at stake.
    Nevertheless, the order of the battle is not necessarily what we imagine: small businesses against multinationals, or simple farmers against heads of industry. In the world of wine, the usual suspects are never there where we expect them.
