Has anyone found where the Mondovino Doc. can be streamed?
Any other favorite gems you've found?
I haven't checked in a while, but I believe Mondovino doc is on Amazon Prime... These were all solid ones I enjoyed:
*Somm, Somm II, Somm III
*A Year in ....(Burgundy, Champagne, Port) - Documentary follows Martine Saunier, of Martine's Wines!
*An American Wine Story -Documentary (#Brooks)
*Sour Grapes -Documentary (Damn you, Rudy)
*Red Obsession (China messing up that Bordeaux market!)
*Blood Into Wine (New Mexico)
*Boom Varietal (Malbec/Argentina)
*Bottle Shock -Because Severus Snape as Spurrier/Judgement of Paris
I hope this helps you!
Anything you/others enjoyed and I am yet to find?
Barolo Boys (about the 70's / 80's break from tradition in Barolo) is also really good.
Thank you this is great! You've covered the ones I've seen, but I'll look for the others I haven't.
*Bottle Shock - Because HANS GRUBER as Spurrier/Judgement of Paris
Uncorked is great too...6 episode series tracking 6 advanced somms attempting the masters. Can stream from amazon or itunes.
Summer in the Vineyard, Autumn in the Vineyard, and Valentine in the Vineyard (Hallmark)
A Walk in the Clouds (Keanu Reeves)
A Good Year (Russell Crowe)
Paris Can Wait (Diane Lane, not really a wine movie but she travels through France eating and drinking her way to Paris)
You Will Be My Son. 2010. In French, with subtitles. Moving and very well done.
Not a movie but “So you think you know wine” on YouTube is a useful series in blind tasting by Canadian wine experts.
Still looking for a place to find somm 3 online :/
A Walk In the Clouds is so cheesy and ridiculous it's amazing, and was filmed in part at Mayacamas in Napa. My favorite part is the "frost dance" that the ladies do, complete with angels' wings and gauzy gowns.
Oh my gosh, that sounds amazing.
Toshi, "Blood Into Wine" is actually a film about two winemakers in Arizona, not New Mexico. The famed rockstar, Maynard Keenan, partnered with Eric Glomski of Page Springs Vineyards to create a new label called Arizona Stronghold. This movie is about their story. The Arizona wine industry was very new to winemaking - just 25 years old at the time of this movie.
Somehow I have missed this and am less for it.
1995... ah yes, mudbogging all hours of the night and finding Henry Weinhard's and/or Zima pretty decent #glorydays
