Epic in scope, this multi-generation, globe-trotting saga covers not only the entire gamut of wine making, but wine's place in a treacherously globalized and hyper-marketed world. From the billionaire power brokers of Napa Valley, to the aristocratic rivalries of competing Florentine dynasties, to the efforts of three generations of a Burgundian family fighting to preserve their few acres of land, MONDOVINO: THE SERIES brings to life the human drama (and comedy) of wine making. Shot over several years and in five different languages, the series features numerous intimate encounters with the wine world's most iconic and controversial figures, including the übercritic Robert Parker, legendary wine mogul Robert Mondavi, zany art collector Jan Schrem, and the noble proprietor of the mythical Romanée Conti vineyard. From Florence to Burgundy, New York to Argentina, each hour-long episode stands alone as a passionate and hilarious piece of documentary filmmaking.
A thoroughly engrossing deep dive into the world of winemaking, virtually a brand-new topic for nonfiction filmmaking. Nossiter, a former Sundance winner and a sommelier - now there's a combination - knows his stuff and asks all the right questions... --The Hollywood Reporter
Subtle, full-bodied, characterful, blessed with a long, elegant finish that keeps you thinking, the film s likely to leave you thirsting for more. --Time Out

It's a little bit like learning the secrets behind your favorite magic tricks. While I can't go off any make a 95pt bottle of wine, I still feel like a bit of the experience has been somewhat demystified. As someone who imagined quaint little french towns with old fashion wine makers lovingly tending their grapes... sipping wine and just relaxing and enjoying life... it's a bit of a shock to see the "raw" side of winemaking. For better or worse, it's a higher level of respect for the craft and particularly amazing is how much this really is truly a "business".
Purchase and enjoy with a glass of your favorite wine - because frankly it's impossible to watch this without a glass in your hand...
