Dogs, winemakers and wine critics
on June 9, 2012
First I did not buy this earlier because of the critical reviews which are unfair and not factual. In my DVD I could read all the subtitles. As far as documentaries go, it's great! Most documentaries I cannot wait for the ending, but this kept me intrigued the entire time.
The cinematography captures the visual beauty of these regions, and just that alone makes it worth watching. Beyond that, the candid seens between members in the winemaking families is thought provoking and you can see their passion for it.
As an aside the documentarian juxtaposes their dogs with the winemaker or wine critic. There was hilarious seen where Robert Parker is espousing something and the camera focuses on the Parker's bulldog who has a big fat frown on his face as though tacitly disagreeing. Other seens suggest wealthy winemakes have uptight dogs while the struggling winemakers have very happy dogs.
If you enjoy wine and wine tasting this is a must watch and it's without the crowds or the gas consumption.
