Mondovino is a sprawling yet personal account of the behind-the-vines struggle for the future of an industry. It was shot on three continents, in five languages, over a three-year period. Juxtaposing artisanal wine growers with multi-national conglomerates, and peasants with billionaires, Nossiter weaves together multiple family and multi-generational sagas, and uncovers a complex tapestry of rivalries, alliances, and conspiracies – all stemming from the production, distribution, and consumption of one of the oldest, most respected luxuries remaining. Mondovino gives voice to those who create, critique, and do commerce in wine, offering up a surprisingly prismatic, varied, and sometimes controversial glimpse into a product so many enjoy but so few truly understand.
